I want to order off of this site. An L99 with 441hp. Yeah baby!! Will the grey seats we get look the same as on this site? It looks like grey insets with black side and back trim, very nice.

If I'm not mistaken, Net refers to SAE Net HP which is the HP generated at the flywheel by the engine with exhaust and all accessories. SAE net is an industry standard for measuring HP. Some companies (Toyota was a big fibber in the past) would advertise "extra high numbers" that couldn't be substantiated. I believe through GM efforts, the SAE standard for measuring HP is the industry standard.

Gross or the 462 HP is likely measure the old fashioned way, with accessories and exhaust.

I don't think anyone has heard of CF trim, though it might look kinda cool on the dash and doors...think ZR-1. You never know what the export version will be like, if it's any different. Oh, and Salaam Alaikum, camaro brother.

Considering it's the Gas Mecca of the world...and the real Mecca of the world ....I presume gas mileage is far from most Saudis' minds... And Suicidal, as to your request for an LS3 with remote start, unless GM does some crazy stuff for the export version of the car, you'll most likely need to get that installed aftermarket as only the L99 car gets it here. (and only in 2SS trim)
