    They were posted on the ebay ad and in your post here comparing the two radios. Maybe I misunderstand, but I thought that's why you posted that - to illustrate the differences in the two connectors.

    I think he wants to know if the '17 ES radio has different connectors than the '14-'15 DE/ES radios.

    Just tossing out a random thought...

    $200 is close to the cost of a quality aftermarket head unit that has higher power, pre-amp outputs, tons of sound customizing options, backup camera input, auxiliary input, DVD player, etc. I have a Kenwood DDX393 and it's only about $50 more than this used radio. I use this head unit to power the 4 door speakers (which I gave upgraded) and it's plenty loud. Well, I have an amp and a subwoofer, too. But that's another story.

    Also keep in mind that the dash piece that surrounds the 2015 radio is different from the piece in the 2017. I think that dash piece is something like $100 from the dealer.

    Exactly. It was said that doubtful that it's plug and play. I bet it is for the 17s and above, like the ad states. I'd like to verify with a 17 ES radio.

    True. However, some people care less about the power and just want the best OEM has to offer, and no matter how nice aftermarket you can get, out never looks as clean at oem.
