Generally speaking, insurance companies insure what you tell them you have. Typically, you give them the model and VIN which indicates packages. The policy premium is based on that information. If you have "upgrades" that you want to insure, then you need to tell them. Do you have an CF hood and trunk? $3K wheels + $2K tires? $6K entertainment system? Maybe a $8K "chameleon" paint job? FI for the engine? etc? Don't expect these to be covered in the coverage for a "plain jane" model.
many policies also limit the amount of customization endorsements you can add to a vehicle as well, usually based on the value of the vehicle. Want your $15k turbo insured on your $10k vehicle? Not likely.
