Stupid curb!! >:|

So I was getting off work and stopped by a corner store, as I'm leaving I think I'm in the clear but it turns out I'm not when all the sudden I hear a big boom. I get home and check and then I see this.
I was so mad at myself for not being more careful and mad at the situation.
So I'm just wondering is there any easy way to fix this? Any suggestions! Thanks!

Try using a little polishing compound and then some touch up paint.

Couldn't have said it any better myself! Or ya might try some 3M "Perfect it" Rubbing Compound or use 1500 -2000 grit sandpaper carefully wet sand it. Then use a polishing compound.

That looks like it has gone down to the metal. So no compound or polish will do anything. Either take it to a body shop or get some touch up paint

I do feel your pain though. I got a nice little shopping cart kiss on my rear bumper. It isn't too bad but there is a slight dent and marring of the plastic. Body shop wanted 550 dollars.

Damn. Hah that's crazy.
I mean its not horrible because its right by my mufflers but its still just the thought of my car being messed up.
I want her to be nice and scratch/dent free.
I was gonna ask how much to you think it'd cost for a body shop to repair it?

Will a new rear valance take care of it? Splitters?...

Upgrade that problem away.

As far as a shop doing it. Out of pocket may be cheaper in the long run.

Its very unnoticeable, but if the sun hits it just right then you can see it. I'm going to stripe the car and i got a sample and put it over that spot its about 90 percent hidden. You can still see a very very small amount, but that's me because i know where it is. Dude i know, just the thought of her having one little spot kills me it really depends on the shop honestly. That was the best price i could find. Other places were wanting around 900. I know this body shop owner and he is a family friend so that was a pretty large discount. You'll just have to take it around. I don't have any paint and body experience so i could be completely wrong here, but i think they would have to remove the bumper, sand it down, re paint it, blend it, buff it. My opinion i think you are looking at anywhere from 500-1000. Again this is my OPINION and i recommend you take it in to a body shop and get a quote. My deductible is 500 so if i were to fix it i would just pay the extra 50 and not file it.

Mine was seriously. SO CLOSE to the splitter, but its not on it so i cant replace it It's right where the light bends. No damage in the middle. Just the very top and the bottom. I swear i go way out of my way and park in the very back and some jackass just cant walk to the cart holder and just lets it roll around and hit vehicles. The other day i was walking out of the store and i saw a shopping cart sitting right on a 5.0 I felt so bad for that person.

Btw, run your fingernail over those scratches. Does your fingernail catch? If so it is too deep to remove except for wetsanding, but i still think that went completely through the clear.
