Car purchase and insurance mis-match - 70D to 75D upgrade

Buying a Model S through Tesla and they've sold it as a 75D whereas it is a 70D that has been software unlocked to 75D (face-lift 2016 Model S) and a 75D badge applied.

I can't see any other issues apart from car insurance - I believe it's listed as a 70D on the V5 so doesn't match when i search the insurance sites (the lady on the phone thought it was listed as a 70D - I assume the V5 shows this level of detail?).

Has anyone had this / dealt with this? No legacy ICE car could upgrade over the air so it's not something insurance companies have come across. I don't want to insure the car incorrectly and give them an excuse not to pay out!
