You can throw some layers away with heated gear. Keep in mind you might want a layer underneath to disperse hot spots. Outer gear that is very well vented might require an outer layer to keep heat in.
If your bike will handle the wattage, go 12V.
Being cold on a bike can result in reduced reaction times and poor hand control. Good on you for the grips!

Part of it depends on the available wattage your bike has, jacket and pants liner is a pretty good draw depending on what accessories you have installed.

I would start with a jacket liner and gloves and see how much you have to go from after that.

Where is the store located at if you don't mind sharing?

The Gerbing's website and Revzilla will show the watt/amp draw for each item of clothing. Make sure you've got enough power left over to run the bike.

I'd start with a jacket liner and gloves (I have the EX gloves and like them quite a bit). Get a dual controller. If you decide to get pants, get the overpants, that way you can wear them over whatever you want.

Easy to prioritize which pieces to get first:

1) Parts of you that got chilled the last time you rode in the cold.
2) Parts of you that were warm enough, but bulky due to lots of layers
3) Pieces that you don't really need but are a good deal or make wiring easier (like if socks fit #1 or #2 and you don't want to snake a Y-harness down each leg every time you suit up then pants might fit this category).
