From what I've read, if they both have dual climate control than it will work.

If you are getting it used, be sure to get the radio's CODE before you put the deck in. Otherwise when you turn the car on for the first time with that new one, you'll gotta take it all out, get the serial number, and talk to a honda dealer.

Aftermarket really is the way to go if you want to get the most out of your system, but some do stay stock and add special interfaces and crossover networks to make a real system out of it. Physically all the 7th gen units can be swapped back and forth, the only important thing is too keep the climate controls the same. Not sure what would happen if you tried to hook up a single zone unite to a dual zone car, or the other way around.

I'm using aftermarket, with a dash kit made by Metra that has the climate controls with a DIN opening. Not a big fan of it. Color is off, and the buttons look crappy and the dials as well. So I'm working on a stock dash kit from a factory radio piece with a DIN opening. I have some of my pictures up. Just working on the relocation process of the kit's main circuit board. Its going well, but with lots of headaches too. Just taking a long time. I'm a big fan of the factory look but with better items in its place.
