I'm sick

So first thing that ran through my mind was "what the **** did this", and asked my wife if she had any encounters with some frozen bushes. She asked if our dog did it, and we have a 10 month old Great Pyrenees and my thinking is the scratches would be much bigger than this. So maybe something running from my Great Pyrenees? God this sucks, I know it's crying over spilled milk, and it's a first world problem but man it only has 8500 miles on it.

Subie without scratches is not being used properly.

Nobody knew that a new car could be so complicated.

It's been initiated into the real world, and now you won't have to constantly worry about how the car looks.

Raccoons maybe. A while back I had them sleeping on the hood of my car to absorb the engine heat, lots of scratches when they jump on and off.

If I might suggest, there's a product called Dr. Colorchip.......here's a link to the company. https://www.drcolorchip.com/

Research it on YouTube. Some have had great results, others only so-so. I tried it on my front bumper down where the paint edges against the unpainted black part (had to fill in a large chip of paint that came off) and it worked okay....not great but definitely okay.

I'm not advertising for them BUT it is interesting when it works as they claim........you also can try the OEM touch up paint BUT be careful to not over apply and then prepare for some surface lite sanding and compound to level the paint out BUT only try this if you feel confident.

As others have pointed out, it's a bumper on a car........nothing more. From the position of the scratches, I'll bet you could do a commendable job yourself........just need some warm weather and some time.....
