    Is there an easy way or any vin decoder that may detail weather or not a vehicle has the launch mode on a particular model S or X? What year did Ludacris come out and what years was insane available? Thanks gang

    Don't think there is a specific VIN digit that tells. There will be a line under the right rear badge.Like so:

    How long before some one starts producing small chrome bars that you affix yourself? Kind of like all the fake "M " version BMW s or AMG Mercedes but the same bar does show up on your dash when you start the car and that can't be faked. Or just put your foot down hard on the accelerator. :)

    There are also the rare P85Ds, including mine, that were upgraded to Ludicrous. The VINs didn't change obviously. Only way to make sure is to see the About dialog (by pressing on the T) and, of course, the Ludicrous option in the settings.

    Ludicrous mode came out in July 2015. Option code BP01 = Ludicrous mode enabled. You can also go to Controls and see if it says Ludicrous:

    I'm not one to cheat at all. I have always been one to pay the price no matter what - so that I can sleep at night. However, I have heard that some folks are going to order every option that "can be" upgraded, but not upgrade it so that their VIN will show the "cheapest" features to their insurance company....then pay cash for all of the upgrades so that their insurance company would never know.

    The only problem I've seen with that is that I've seen my insurance company not repair a car to its fully upgraded potential because they were oblivious to "said" upgrades that they didn't know about.

    I have seen plenty of cars without the line underneath.
