Any difference between the emissions of the Cali cars and the rest of the States.??

I was wondering if there is any difference between the emissions of the California Elises and the rest of the States cars, since California usually has tougher standards.
My concern is that I currently live in N.Y. and picking up the car from a N.Y. dealer, but will be moving down to California next year.
Cheers

In CA, the emissions given off have a definite scent of Merlot...fruity, with a hint blackberry and chocolate. :D
(A little CA wine humor. You have to get into wine if you move here.)

Seriously, the Elise is a 50-state emissions car. They are all manufactured to the same emissions standard.

There is a sticker on the underside of the engine cover. We've confirmed - once - that the sticker on non-California cars states that the car meets California emissions standards. Chances are, they're all the same, but if you want to be sure, look for that sticker (approx 4x6" or so I think).
