They're all built in North America (same plant). I don't think they use different colors for US & Canada.

btw, how's your magnaflow?

Pretty good, nice growl to them but a little too loud when accelerating up hills on hwy's. But if you have your music up you can't hear them.

Got them from a car tuner shop, but I think it's just like gutter guard. I just couldn't find it at the hardware store. So I paid too much for them :(



... ok I'll order a can of the Blazing Copper from paint scratch then. LED mirror covers on the way and I guess I should get some eyelids while I'm at it :)

The US colours and Canadian colours are the same. They use different names (due to different marketing stragegies) but if you look up the colour code, they are the same. I think We had Lapis Blue and they had Sonic Blue but they had the same colour code. I think we have Blazing Copper and they have Burnt Orange Metallic or something like that. I can't remember, it's been too long since I looked into this issue.

Thats Right, you just got it backwards, we had sonic blue they had lapis, we had burnt orange they had blazing.
