I know that when it comes to the E36 BMW M3, the US got the 240 horsepower version whereas CANADA got the 326 horsepower eurospec car. Also, I know that emissions are restrictions are harsher here than in europe. For example, the BMW M5 makes 394 horsepower here but 400 in Germany, Mercedes V12 389 horsepower (1999 & earlier) and 408 in Germany.............. Anyways back to the earlier CANDA talk, if there are less restrictions as far as emissions in CANADA do their cars make a few more horses (one less catalytic converter or a less restrictive version)...

I think the regulation here in Canada is pretty much the same as in the US. We also get the same, detuned (240HP) M3 here. However, we don't have the 3 series station wagon as well as the A4, S4 Avant due to tighter regulations (which kinda sux)

Sorry for rehashing an old topic, but the Canadian-spec IS300 rides 16mm higher at the front and 29mm higher at the rear.
