It's very difficult to find a non-fogged 01/02 mirror, they seem to be a perishable item. You can have the glass/LCD replaced in yours for about $120+- if you're a stickler. The absolutely correct mirror for that will need to be from an 01-02 (don't think it was an option in 00 but I could be wrong). Later models will be wedge mount, yours is cam mount.
That's easily overcome by buying a cam-to-wedge mount adapter, costs about $15 from your local dealer.
Get that and your range of mirrors opens up substantially. Only other compatibility issue stems from the connector type. Early (up through about 05 or so but don't quote me on that) ones use a long flat connector, later models use a square connector. If you get a mirror with a square connector, you can buy a pigtail (again, from eBay) and splice it into yours easy enough. Costs another $10-20 for the pigtail.
That also lets you upgrade to a mirror with Homelink.
Doesn't have to be from a Subaru, especially if you get the wedge-mount adapter.
I just buy 'em on eBay when I need one. . usually pay around $50-100 for one.

I seem to get a lot of "will xx fit in my car?" emails. . . I'm not the authority on everything Subaru, so I very well may tell you the wrong answer as there's nobody else to check me. Please search or ask via the forums first. . .when I answer you via email, it never gets posted and nobody else can confirm or refute my answer.
