Yet Another Wiring Harness Question

2010 Cobalt LT
Okay so a bit of background information. The Aux port on my stock head unit isn't working properly anymore. The company I work for has a rewards program where you earn points to spend on stuff in their catalog. They have this head unit available. http://www.amazon.com/BOSS-Audio-BV9759BD-Double-Din-Touchscreen/dp/B00EEO4W9S Not the greatest, but free, and has streaming bluetooth, which my car doesn't have stock.

Now to my question. I know I need a rather expensive wiring harness if I want to keep my chimes and turn signal clicks. The PAC C2R-GM11 seems to be the one I need, and while the catalog has a few PAC parts, this harness isn't on there. That said, I found a different harness that says it will work Harness which is fantastic, but it says I will lose my DIC. I was under the impression that the dic has nothing to do with the Radio. Can anyone confirm this? Will this harness even work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I have never done anything like this before. My expertise is computers, and while I'm learning, I still know almost nothing about cars. Thanks!

It says "Does not retain drivers information center if equipped " but it also says "Does not retain steering wheel controls" Your DIC controls are on the steering wheel so you would lose your DIC switching capability, that would be a bummer. Do it right get the proper harness and be free of problems.

Fair enough, I just assumed by steering wheel controls it was only stereo controls, which my vehicle does not have.
