yeah i got a scrape like that on the front right edge of my m-sport and im one of the few people who knows its there.

i'm gonna just touch it up myself. if you are decent at using 1500 grit sand paper itll look close enough and obviously wont be perfect but still. i dont know, not worth spending the money on a full respray unless its really bad or theres like rock chips too since itll probably just happen again if its minor like that.

you'll regret paying to $300-800 to paint it the minute you scrap it again.

fyi, i've heard that a reasonable price for a full respray with the bumper taken off your car and sanded is about $500-550. i've had much worse spots airbrushed over on other cars i've had like say from hitting a potted plant done for under $200. so yeah you might want to look around.
