East Coast vs West Coast Cars

Am I stupid for buying a car in LA when I am moving to Boston in six months? Are "west coast" cars different than "east coast" cars?

I live in LA and need a car to get to work. So I am planning on buying a new car.
However, six months from now I am being transfered to an office in Boston, where I will live for the foreseeable future.
My friend swears that new cars sold on the West Coast are different (different engine parts, fluids, etc..) than cars sold on the East Coast. And, therefore I will have a very hard time trying to sell my car in Boston, whenever I end up doing so.
I have never heard of anything like this before. Is he wrong?
