scuffed front lip

hey guys, i was driving down a rather steep driveway today and pulling out into the road, i knew i might scrape, so i went as slow as possible and it still scuffed the living hell out of the front part of my front lip, not to mention the bottom of it, its white and black, really rough (asphalt)

is there any way to fix this??
should i leave it???
how much would just the new front lip cost??

thanks

a few pics would help us understand the amount of damage (scuffing) that was caused

whatever you do, don't break a "bracket" of sorts on the front bumper. I did, and my bumper sags ever so slightly to one side (like a pinky finger between the driver side head light and bumper). And I don't even scrape very often, it must have been a one time luck deal.


and i've been told i can't get it replaced unless i get a completely new one.

yeah im working on the pics
but i guess im just freaking out because its a new car
i dont want to pay 200 bones for a new one.

oh and i already had to put my foot up my friends ass for writing on my PAINT with WINDOW marker when my car was dirty....= scratched in letters in the clearcoat....

i got alot of buffing a polishing to do when it warms up

any ideas on those scratches??? they are are my right door, wing, front bumper. trunk...
they are visibly scratched into the clearcoat when the car is clean and its sunny but i dont think you can feel them...
