I believe that some of the early xizang s had a problem with cracking but this was rectified in later years.
The lighntings were all made in the far east as Scant said.
I think all the lighnings had a matt ti finish and the xizangs had a polished finish.
The geometry is the same.

The finish from the Xizang was a bit different, like the dropouts, and the end plate from the top-tube.
