SS changes for model years

Since I'm new to the SS scene, I have been watching SS videos posted on YouTube. I have noticed changes to the 17 from the 14 other than front end refresh, rims, Brembo's on all fours, addition of new color choices, MRC and manual transmission.

I noticed the following are no more:
Aux input, CD player or third memory seat button.

Any other features that I missed?

2014 to 2015: Added rear Brembo brakes, different shark-fin antenna for 4G LTE/WiFi, delete of lower rear seat cushion cupholder, Magnetic Ride Suspension, M6 transmission now offered, rear valance became gloss black rather than flat, new colors available.

2015 to 2016: VFII introduced with redesigned front fascia, hood vents, red Brembo brakes, new wheels, bi-modal exhaust, delete of CD player and AUX port, new color options/some removed.

2016 to 2017: Only color options changes.

Other minor changes:
Mid-production in 2014 the keyfob was changed so that the trunk release says HOLD to open. This was likely implemented when the BCM update came out so that the trunk doesn't immediately upon when pressing the button since owners had issues with the button being pressed while in pockets.

Unsure of timeline this change was made, but on 2014 models the sunroof close button has two positions for closing - one presumably for autoclose however it never functioned due to safety concerns. Newer models only have a single position for closing.

So am I understanding that there is no Aux input or it was just moved off the radio face? I thought I saw an aux input next to the USB input in the center console, but I could be mistaken.

With the fog light removal the DRLs also operate at night with the headlights - a common modification made to '14/'15 cars since they did not operate at night.
