You might be able to find a good used one from someone who did an upgrade.

Or:

If you want to put in the effort, you could fine sand (320-600, no more than necessary) the vertical edge below the radius, then scotchbrite out the sanding marks. Try to sand up/down or at least at 45deg. Then scotchbrite perpendicular to the sanding. The radius will be your transition for blend. Use/make a sanding block (old fashioned non-pneumatic.) This will create a smooth surface where you worked it, then transition to the textured surface at the radius. You may be able to get away with only sanding the affected area then transitioning gradually left and right. But it may be better to sand/sb the entire vertical surface.

Then wipe it all down with Armorall. Reapply Armorall at every wax.

Buy a tennis ball and rub it across it.It works really well, depending on how deep the damage is. It's hard to tell on a 2D photo.

No kidding? That is cheap- where online to find one? - I checked eBay- not good quality, hard to find a wide body 2020
Thanks
Let me do some digging and see if I can find it again.

If you used the tennis ball....do you have to do the whole piece of plastic so it's even? (like does it leave marks or a trail where you rubbed it?)

I hit something that was bouncing around on the interstate and it put a mark on mine got a OEM and a body shop friend put it on. He said it was good that I got a OEM cause he's had people with aftermarket stuff in and they don't fit

Tennis ball? I once again learn something here. I have a steep driveway and was constantly taking a sanding block to the lower edge. Finally bought some "bumpers" that mount on the underside to take the abuse. Those wouldn't have helped Superbee but has gotten me off the garage floor!

I think it just takes the burrs off and smooths the sharp edge to blend it in.

A tennis ball took the damage off from the splitter guards that were stuck on my vehicle for 5 months before it actually was delivered. It had some fairly pronounced scratches. On the plus side, it can't hurt anything and it might help out :) Worth a shot!
