2011 Lancer ES Stock CD to MMCS upgrade

Hello Everyone. First time posting even though I have been reading this forum as a guest for years.

I have a 2011 Lancer ES with the factory CD Player/stereo system, non NAVI. I just found a used MMCS unit that I am thinking of purchasing as an upgrade to the original system.

Only thing remaining is the handsfree module, the domelight microphone, and possibly a little reprogramming. Thinking of unlocking the anemic factory drive and cloning it to something with a bit more capacity, cuz MP3s are life.

8750A238 MMCS (N-05 Head Unit) $260
8750A225 Lancer CAN Interface Module $68
8701A168 MMCS mounting bracket $22.88 (Edit add)
8755A055 Wiring conversion Harness $24.53 (Edit add)
8785A028 Bluetooth/Handsfree module $220 (Edit add. May salvage from trashed vehicle at local yard)
8751A011 GPS Antenna $110
OR
QBFU747 Bingfu Active GPS Antenna with GT5 Grey Connector. $11.97 (Edit add)
(Tested it yesterday. This product works fine with the MMCS unit for 1/10th the price of the dealership. Also has higher gain than the stock model.)
8002A376XA OEM 2DIN (Wide) Bezel for MMCS $50 (Edit add)
NOTE: Aftermarket sucks. Incompatible with MMCS, which is approx 2cm wider at the head than standard Double DIN radios.

Most of the installation process is fairly straight forward. I am just trying to see if there are any common pitfalls others have encountered that I may have missed.
Any advice is appreciated. Once I have all the parts in hand I will update this with install details.
