Besides the price, is there really any difference in Honda OEM accessories from the US or Canada? I saw this quote on a webdealers site...

The accessories we sell are only designed to work on US market cars. If you have them shipped by a 3rd party to outside of the US we can not warranty them or guarantee that they will fit or function properly.
I am planning to shop for OEM accessories across the border (it is so much cheaper), but this quote made me stop and wonder.

I am specifically wondering how different the US side steps would be on a Cdn Pilot.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Stick w/ mechanical hardware....

Things like side steps, mudflaps, etc. that don't involve wiring changes are probably pretty safe. Foglights, NAV, etc. are another story.

I wish I had your heated side mirrors?

You can download a copy of all the Honda OEM accessories from www.hondacuraworld.com. Compare the instructions to the Canadian instructions, any differences, don't buy it.

Wrong Wood Trim

Well, I once order Wood Trim from ebay, even in the email he stated it was both US and Canadian model. Well, he's F$%%^&G lied; it was Canadian model. I never been able to send him an email nor he ever reply to my email.

I lost $149 for that P/O/S.

The reason I ask about the Canadian site or accessories, because I was thinking about heated seat..

What is different about the interior surfaces that made the CA not fit the US?

I think the canadian pilot has a different center console piece for where the heated seat switches go.

Borg,

How about doing a side by side comparison on CA versus US pilots with pics inside and out?

I woulda thought that there was only one difference between American and Canadian accessories. With the American version, you read the instructions, and install the accessory. With the Canadian version, you read the instructions, and install the accessory, eh.

Immediately below the heating/cooling unit, the Canadian models have the heated seat switches. It's called heated seat control on the attached part listing:

If you flip the instructions over you will have to be able to read French, eh. This is where you will get into trouble!
