I just got my V front bumper at a place in Toronto. The bumper was $399 and it is awesome. Super quality for non OEM. Everything fits perfect. I know you are all on the states but even with shipping it may be the cheapest you are able to find.
To stay on topic, I'd suggest going with the black plate with the silver script. The silver plates can get ugly pretty quick from bugs and chips. The black one can easily be touched up. I also think that with the color scheme on your car the silver plate with black script would be too much unless you put a black frame on it that cut down the visible amount of silver.
If you remove the plate it'll give the car a much cleaner look. At the end of the day it all depends on the $$$. If you have enough to remove repair and repaint then go for it. But I might be one of the few that likes the look with the front plate
