Yes, as the wiring for both kits is identical, only the fascia part is different.

Well, thankīs a lot, i ask cause at the web with Connects2 kit there isn`t a word about that.

The original Honda fascia is a lot better in terms of being a match to the original dash.

The Connects2 fascia is made from a slightly different plastic and has less little bumps on it than the original, it is not a bad match though.

Hmm, it could be one from Hong Kong, I have seen one before on eBay, no idea how good of a match it is, but the price is not even very cheap.

Edit: I think it is this?

You can see the colour difference plus it doesn't come with the wiring so where's the benefit?

The Honda one is perfect whereas the Connects2 one is a good colour match but slightly shiny compared to the dash.

Exactly, one from Hong Kong is a waste of time.

About six months i became owner of a 2007 Civic. I really love this car. I saw a video on youtube where a Double din head unit was installed in a honda civic. I was really excited so started searching on the internet when finally found a complete kit and ordered right away. Now a feel a need to cry. The double din adapter is something horrible There is a lot of gaps, and that color... So shiny... so black....
Somebody know where to buy a really good quality Adapter?
