Scraping underside of front bumper

So I just literally collected my 992 from topaz today where’s it’s had a full body PPF and have tonight gone onto a drive way which was raised more than I realised and the lip of the front bumper has scratched / scraped all along the underside. It doesn’t seem to have damaged the paintwork area nor the PPF I hope but the black plastic bit is all jagged and scuffed. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is it worth it or expensive to replace or repair?

had this on a 996 turbo s a while back from memory it was £130 plus fitting so definitely worth getting it replaced on a brand new car bet you were gutted

done the same myself - it was a simple unscrew/re-fit replacement part and wasn't expensive.

I've given up on the sanding...almost not visible and will replace if I ever sell!
