Mein Auto: 335i convertible
Question sratched bottom front bumper

I expect given the low hang of the 335i (c) that this a somewhat common, if inconvenient, occurance. Can this be lightly sanded and touched up with something the size of a lady's fingernail brush, or are their better ideas short of a major paint job?

Yeah I hate that but keep in mind its way low and probably only you are sensitive to seeing it.

What color is your car?

I've only repaired / triaged black or white and trimming off any hanging chads plus light smoothing hides the ragged edge. Paint match with a touch up brush ... don't rattle can it.

You know it will happen again.

Major paint job definitely not required unless this is a show car.
