Montero V93W MMCS Upgrade


Good morning fellow Petrol heads,

After years of reading posts and looking at adverts, finally I found myself a problem worth the attention of a larger forum (I think). I've recently bought a used Montero V93W GLS here are some of features

1.Build Year 2011 export model

2.GLS With Rockford 6 CD changer with Aux In and USB ( no MMCS, no Bluetooth support)

3.No premium alarm with ultra sound sensors (just the immobilizer)

Having said that, here's the situation. For some time I've been contemplating if it made sense to upgrade the 6 CD changer to the OEM MMCS. The reasoning is as follows

1. The reverse camera is currently one of them Chinese media player cum rear view mirror thingy (which is hiding that nice anti dazzing rear view mirror which came with the jeep)

2. Handsfree mobile connectivity sucks ( Aux in works but the Rockford's DSP is messing with the noise cancelling feature of the phone)

I've ruled out using an aftermarket Dual Din set up mainly because the CD player is tightly coupled to the Rockford amplifier and personally I prefer the OEM version.

I've also done some research on scope of this engagement, it will require ( I'm sure I'm missing more stuff here) the addition of

1.The Hand free ECU

2. Handfree switches on the Steering wheel

3.Microphone installation which requires the premium alarm's ultrasonic sensor housing to be installed

4. The all mighty MMCS. (GPS Sensor is optional)

Considering how well the modules are integrated using the CAN-BUS, I'm sure it wont be a walk in the park but if done, I would like to do it without splicing too many wire in a nice OEM kinda way. 

So, what do you guys think about this endeavor. Does it make sense ? Has anyone an idea about where to acquire the parts and/or a good place to get this done?
