Yes they are with 2 exceptions:
1. Different seat belts (in some cases) than US spec cars
2. Speedometer is in KPH rather than MPH
I believe that they also have daytime running lights.
Daytime running lights began with the 1990 model year and therefore with the 348's
I came close to buying an "89 328 from Brian Jessel in Vancouver and was told that it had daytime running lights because of Canadian requirements. I never saw the car so I cannot verify that statement.
I have looked at two or three Canadian 328's, and while not conclusive, the only difference I noticed off hand was the speedo in kph with mph in lower scale. That was all. No drls that I have ever seen on a 328 driving in Vancouver....
In addition to the speedo in Km/H, like Mondial 3.2's and newer, Canadian 328's had little boxes tucked up into the corners of the front grille to hide higher-rated bumper shocks (at that time, U.S. cars were tested at 2.5mph for bump resistance and Canadian cars were at the equivalent to 5mph). I suspect that all Mondials needed the higher-rated bumpers regardless of market because it was a heavier car.
You can find this info in Cavallino Magazine, issue #55, Feb/Mar 1990 "Lettere" section...
Thanks to all.
