Am I screwed?

Took the first ski trip of the year and came back with two scratches, one on my door (about a foot long) and just found the one on my trunk today. Not sure if it is from equipment, or someone keying my car, but I'm still rattled.

Kind of more pissed about the trunk since it stands out more than the door.

What can you do in these situations? Touch up, Lci rear conversion, or call insurance?

Touch up paint, wet sand, and then polish. If you aren’t able to do the work, a good detailing shop can. If you are bringing it to a shop and want to save money, do the paint touch up yourself.

Horrible to see this, feel for you buddy. As for the repair, I second the first reply when it comes to DIY.

You could go through insurance if you go the pro repair route and work in your LCI upgrade with whomever does the repair, but weigh the cost out as the claim might impact your premium going forward depending on your insurance history.
