The fascia's are identical in size, the only difference is that the cheap one has brackets you can bolt the head unit directly onto and the plastic it's made from (not such a good match). If you want to use a cage, you need a smaller 103mm one and not the one that comes with the headunit - this can be used with either fascia, this is the only option on the OEM one though.
I have the cheap fascia, slightly shiny compared to the dash but to be honest, dont notice now. I used the brackets to attach the headunit, there are so many cables, boxes etc that you would never want to remove the headunit from the cage for fear of not getting it back again.
