I sent my dealer this link
http://www.allpar.com/cars/chrysler/300C-SRT8.html
which says its possible and he has sent it up the chain and expecting an answer in 2 or 3 days.

No, it is not planned nor currently possible, direct from the SRT Engineers themselves. There is a physical hardware difference.

It was originally planned to be backward compatible for 2012.

Ok, Anyone with a definitive answer for this. Does my early production (built Sept. 2011, VIN #000771 ) 2012 300 SRT8 have Launch Control? If so, how do I activate it? If not, can it be added/turned on? I asked my dealer, he said he never heard of Launch Control. (Maybe I need to find another dealer, LOL) A definitive answer one way or another would be greatly appreciated.
