Front bumper lip cover? *not* looking for aero

Hi guys,

I've a silver 335d m-sport and frankly I think it already looks amazing. I am, however, putting some serious mileage on my car and the road rash is starting to eat up the underside and the bottom lip of the front bumper.

Does anybody know of any type of painted cover to improve the aesthetics, and then have the ability to cover that with a film? The lower lip is already pretty scratched up all the way through to the black plastic, so i don't' think even a respray would really be helpful.

Any opinions would be greatly helpful!

I haven't ran across anything that you are mentioning

I used to work around a body shop when I was younger and I had people use rhino lining (a thin application on that part) and paint over it

What's causing the contact of the front with the road? I've only had minor contact when going down steep transitions, etc. and I have the Aero lip on it.
