do you want to spend 800 to 1200 dollars? because that's how you spend 800~1200 dollars.

polish it out or throw and sticker on it and ride. there will be more soon enough.

Is there such thing as a magnet/decal or does it have to be a sticker? I own a
Biz and i like the idea of different magnets etc rather than a perm sticker

You could go nuts with something like this:

Do you own a printer?
Do you have Amazon?
Are you slightly creative?

Then the sky is the limit.

Buy magnetic sheets. Design what you wants. Print on sticky paper. Trim accordingly. Done. Repeat as necessary.

I'd start out by giving the scratched area a good buff with a polishing compound and then see what you think.

Someone just posted on here about buying a touchup kit and fixing scratches, the job came out amazing. I think the scooter fell over, it was worse than what you have. You should see the before and after pics.

If you could find a good detailer in your area, it would cost a lot less.
