Are all of the first P85Ds "Plus" versions?

I keep seeing references to some P85Ds as being "plus" versions and understand that this has to do with the suspension (i.e., the P85+ suspension setup being used on the P85D). What I don't understand is how to tell if you have one.

We ordered our P85D right after the P85D intro event and it was delivered in late December 2014. The one thing we didn't want was the 21" wheels and we even were ready to cancel the order when we found out that all P85Ds were going to come only with the 21s (luckily they changed the policy before production started).

Are the only P85D+ models the ones with 21" wheels or can a 19" setup also be a plus? While I am very satisfied with the handling, we'll be selling this car in a few months and I want to make sure that I describe it properly.

I looked over our order (it's below) and didn't see anything about a plus suspension :
85 kWh Performance Model S $104,500.00
Dual Motor All Wheel Drive -
Green Metallic Paint $750.00
All Glass Panoramic Roof $2,500.00
19" Silver Cyclone Wheels $2,500.00
Grey Next Generation Seats $3,500.00
Obeche Wood Matte Décor $650.00
Black Alcantara Headliner -
Tesla Red Brake Calipers -
Supercharger Enabled -
Tech Package with Autopilot $4,250.00
Smart Air Suspension $2,250.00
Ultra High Fidelity Sound $2,500.00

See this post from a few days ago which explains everything (thanks to HankLloydRight):

Did I overpay?

So my P85D is also an early December 2014 build with 19" wheels, and my Monroney sticker does state "Performance Plus Suspension".

Thanks, it's sorta weird...under the MVPA tab the list of features didn't include a few things that were on the final delivery configuration sheet. Looks like we do have the performance plus package, which was a no cost feature. I always thought the car handled a lot better than it should have (based on reviews from a few months after the P/Ds starting coming out).

Yep, you have a unicorn like mine. ;)

Unless u know another code that has always been plus
Yep/agreed. I just remember Hank saying that even though the decode shows no PX01 that some cars got it. Same was sometimes true for the reverse as well. Some cars decoded with PX01, but didn’t really have it. It was all due to the stock on hand when they were phasing it out.
Either way, visual inspection confirms it.

Just to clarify, evtripping.com shows you the option codes on your specific car, once you supply your TESLA ACCOUNT login credentials. It retrieves the codes through the Tesla API.

You can then take the list of codes and plug them into Ev-cpo.com/lookup to get them translated. It also has all option codes stored for any car sold through Tesla's CPO or Inventory sale website just by plugging in the VIN. No TESLA ACCOUNT login necessary.

The first part is true, not all P85D cars with the + suspension have the PX01 code.

But at this point, I've been unable to find a P85D produced before May 2015 that does not have the + suspension.

But still visual inspection is the best method to confirm.

Code SU02 can also indicate Performance Plus. When Tesla did alignment on my plus P85D+ the reports states "Air Suspension (SU101) / Performance Plus (SU02/SUPP)".

Not sure what the difference between PX01 vs SU02 is - possibly PX01 is the 21 staggered tires and SU02 SAS+?
