Front bumper scraped

Checked out the car a few days ago and became pretty sad. Not sure what caused this, I thought it could be a shopping cart but it's at an odd angle, so I think another car scraped mine (perhaps a truck with a higher clearance). Anyway, can it be repainted and approximately how much do you think it'd cost?

Is the paint actually scraped off or is that superficial? If it is then it can be buffed out. A repaint is $350-500.

Paint actually scraped off, rubbing my finger over it the paint is stripped off in that area, with small hairline cracks in the paint around the edges.

Bummer on the price of repainting. Guess I'll be looking for a used MTech pre-LCI front bumper (as from what I gather a new one is approx. $500 before prep/paint).
