    Probably the one out of the 57 plate is a Symphony II+ and not a Symphony II.

    You can get wiring adapters from e.g. Kufatec, but the remaining problem will be the antenna connectors and diversity system. the Symphony II uses frequency diversity but the Symphony II+ uses phase diversity and that means cars with Symphony II+ have a different antenna system.

    You'd be best to install an rns-e mate if you have the older iso connectors, swapping the antenna systems over without much more gain would be expensive, when installing an rns-e would give you so much more for probably near the same price, which means your antenna system would be compatible, give me a shout if of use, as I supply/fit these systems.
