Okay, so I was parking my car and was not aware that I was so close to the curb and ended up running into it scraping the underside of my front bumper a good amount. The curb was maybe a little less than .5'' higher than the bumper and you can see the scrape marks on the front/edge of the bumper when looking at it eye to eye. What makes it worse is that the curb was painted white, and now I have white gashes and scratches on my bumper. Luckily the curb wasnt much higher and I didnt crack, directly run into it head on, or really mess up my bumper.
Have you guys done this to your IS's? What did you do to fix it (re-painting, touch up paint, wetsand & buff) or did you just leave it alone? Im thinking of possibly buying the lip kit now that I have cosmetically damaged my bumper, but would this cover up the bottom part of the bumper where I scraped it up?

My stock spoiler has scrapes on the underside, most of which I did with stock sport suspension springs. Now that I'm on Eibach 350's I'm more careful. Damage occurs when parking nose-in. But I'm not worried about since the scratches are all underneath. I am reluctant to add a lip, because I think I would damage it visibly soon enough.
