+1 on splitters. cover it up and add an aggresive look to your car. Can't go wrong with that.

Yea we all do that at one time, but once you do it, you know to be extra careful moving forward. I've notice our cars sit kinda low, at least the front end does. Do you have the ZSP and/or dropped on anything?

Yea touch up paint will work. I'm not sure how much it costs but I think SES_D got some and could tell you how much it was.
