Bumper Scrape

1850 32
Well it finally happened. I scraped up my lip and now it looks like garbage.
Do you guys think if I sand and polish it I can make it look better?
Or is replacement the only option.

I heard a new front piece is not that expensive, just the labor to remove the bumper sucks.

Did you hit it parking? I ALWAYS back in I still can't judge the front of this car!
Sorry for your scrape, sucks.

After 6 years of driving 2 of these I too can't judge the front worth a damn! I'll pull forward into a spot thinking I'm 6 inches from the curb only to find out I'm 2 to 3 feet away.

Do nothing until it is time to sell.
I used to freak over that kind of stuff, too. Especially if it's a newer car. But as time rolls along I realized it's not new anymore and those things just happen when you drive this car. Wish they didn't. But if you replace or repair it then wait like you said he should wait till he sells it and then replace it $200 because it will surely happen again.

The first rock chip is always the worst. Gets a bit easier as time goes on, as you say. 😁
