Hello! That is a very interesting thread. I am planning to buy a bose equipped ZE 1 Leaf and replace the bose audio system. Just to make sure - your car is a second generation Leaf ? Best . Michal

I don't know about the ZE1 designation but yes my car is a 2018 Leaf SL which is the first year of the second generation (40 Kw) leaf.

When it comes to actually doing the wiring, I would recommend my second method of using Metra AX-DSP harness and modifying it as opposed to buying the two other harnesses and having to repin them.

Thanks Lashlee,

That’s very helpful. Do you happen to know if the new Leaf Bose system is the same as in the previous gen? Looks like it :)

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a first-generation model to verify it. I did use a service manual to find many of the wire locations (though the wire colors were incorrect.

They changed it in 2016 or 2017, removing the CD player. I think they kept that version for 2018+.

My 2017 SL with Bose has a CD player. It's a Canadian model though, so not sure if that changes things.

I'm going by secondhand info, so I can't clear it up either, I'm afraid. Let's hear from Americans with '16 and '17 Leafs, please! CD player or no CD player? They definitely dropped it in the US for '18.
