Default Do I have FX3?

I just brought home a 1990 Quasar Blue Coupe to replace the 1986 that was trashed last week. The PO had installed a remote controlled 10-CD player in back, and had velcroed the controller right between the seat controls in the center console. When I lifted it, I noticed a small hole in the center that looks stock. The velcro covers everything else so I don't know if the normal FX3 label lies underneath. Should I mess up the velcro to see if there is a label underneath, or is there another way to find out if the car has FX3 and merely needs a switch?

Look at your product codes. It should say FX3. They are under the center console lid. Others are FE1(standard), Z51(Performance), and R9G which I have no idea what it is.

You can also look at your shocks, if they have a servo motor on top of them, you have (or have parts to) an FX3. Non FX3 just have a screw sticking out of the top of the shock. Lift your hood and look at the front two shocks for the servo, it's easy to see.

As it turns out (to my dissapointment) the production code was the standard FE1. I was hoping for FX3. I drive my Vette whenever it's not raining hard or snowing, so I wanted the cushy ride, but I go autocrossing once or twice a month, and it would be nice to have the firm suspension my 86 had for that sort of thing.

I still have no clue what the hole in the plate is for. It's a little less than a quater inch in diameter, and has a black plastic ring around it. Di Corvette ever put a logo there?
