Chrome grill overlay, paint or chrome grill?

Anyone have a silver Sport with a chrome grill overlay? I'm trying to decide if I replace the color matching grill with a chrome one (like the SR5), paint the bottom end of the bumper silver or buy the overlay instead. There is just too much darn black plastic on the front. Looks cheap to me. Any pics would be great......

If you wish to swap I will send you my flawless chrome one for your color matched one.

These are the two best shots of my front end currently.

PM if you wish to work out some logistics on this.
