Sorry but you are completely wrong about everything you just said !!!

Grant it you will get sound by not coding ,
But you could run into problems .

For example -
Some 1 came to me cause he put in a used ASK
Unit , he got radio sound but lost PDC &
Station programming .

FYI this does not happen with all used ASK units

Now as for the MMI not needing coding . Again you are 110% wrong
unless you want features missing that the doner car didn't have that
your car has or you want Greyed out features the doner car had that
your car don't
