I effed up big time.

so i was in a rush to school, and i parked way too close to the curb. is the crack fixable? maybe its a sign to get full m-tech.
the third pic is a view from the bottom. i just got this lip, i'm so mad at myself right now.

It is defenetely fixable but depending on where you take it it may not be logical in terms of cost. My previous Infiniti had a worst one and friend of mine who has a body shop fixed it

it is possibly fixable. Take it to someone who knows alot about fiberglass maybe a boat painter would be the best shot.

fiberglass pieces are relatively cheap to purchase...the amount of labor to fix, and to repaint the lip will be the same, if not more to purchasing a new one

Easily fixable.
You could do it on your own with some bondo and primer.
And bring it to body shop to get painted.
