Hard to tell with reflections but contours look good so maybe just traded some paint? A good microfine polish on a quality polisher and pad at low speed certainly worth a try. Come over and you can use any of my equipment for free.
That happened to me with my last car in a Hooters parking lot. I had a g37s and someone with a trailer hitch backed right into my front bumper. It destroyed it!
In VA I was able to use my insurance company which did not register against me. I think it was called unisured motorist. I believe it was a $150 out of pocket for me. But since it was some statewide coverage it did not put a claim on my personal insurance policy. You may want to check in to it.
Did something very similar to my own, same spot too. Took it to a bodyshop, paid just under $50 and they buffed most of it smooth, for the slightly deeper scuff they suggested trying to fill it in with touch up paint, layer by layer. They said because the plastic is naturally black it'll work better on a black car than another colour would.
Trying it this week, if it works I'll post a pic, so you can decide if that's worth trying.
Their other option was a full replacement, way too much $$
Dude! Bummer! Sorry! The same weekend as my damaged windshield I had a scrape on my bumper that I didn't even know about so I feel you pain. I'll post pics tomorrow. Yours doesn't look to deep from the photo?
