I like the idea of the flags each side of the snake and think if you can pull it off adding 5.0 to the left and GT to the right would be excellent. Unfortunately you will probably need to have them made special and then they will stand above the inserted snake unless you mod the grill.
Removing the snake and adding something else will just make it look tacky and no matter what, you will see the outline of the snake. Removing it and doing nothing still leaves the outline which would be worse and look half done.
One final idea and I will shut up. Ever thought of painting the snake matt or gloss black and then putting in red accents like the eyes etc. This would tone down the appearence a little and make it unique to your car only.
Just seems like a lot of work to appease an opinion to me. Why mess up all the hard work to satisfy someone other than you?
Leave the snake alone it looks fine... IMHO
