Default Difference between Canadian and American front bumper for Base Model?

Hello! This is my first post on here so hopefully this is the right place. So I recently imported a 2016 370z Base from Canada to the states. I managed to crack the bumper so I was planning on replacing it. I called the Nissan dealers here in the US and they said they can't order a bumper for me because the US part number is different from the Canadian bumper part number. They said it might have some tiny differences between the two where Nissan had to make two separate part numbers completely. Because the Nissan dealers in the US don't know anything about the Canadian bumpers, and the Canadian dealers don't know anything about the US bumpers, I thought I should ask a forum, lol. Does anyone know if the US front bumper and the Canadian front bumper have any major differences? Or should they be pretty interchangeable?

Thank you so much!

Technically from a fitment on the chassis perspective they are interchangable. Different countries have different laws and sometimes this means small changes on the bumper. Such as having sprayers integrated for xenon headlights (europe) or having side markers on the car (US) or different types of reflectors.
