aftermarket stereo installation question

I'am in the process of adding a aftermarket headunit to my hhr. I been having problems with getting the right wire harness for the job. I have purchased two already from best buy and they still can't seem to get me the right one. Can someone help me out on what is the right one to use!!

I think it was said in other posts, but since he has the base system, the wiring will be different. No line outs, antenna, amp trigger, maybe more differences. Probably a different harness.
