2020, turbo sports package gloss finish. Just the surface piece damaged. Is this something a homeowner can replace? Any site suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks ! Mike

Sorry to see your ding. Do not have any site suggestions.
I share your pain in a different spot.
My front bumper and hood PPF and ceramic took two hits by rocks last week.
Will get it to the company who wrapped it later this month to see if it affected the paint and what can be done to repair. Appears to have broken/torn the ceramic/PPF.

This won't help @domin1720, but I've read that heat (hot water or heat gun) can restore damaged PPF. From your photo it appears the whiteness could be PPF crazing and/or embedded material, rather than damaged paint. Will be interesting to see what your PPF shop determines.

Thread jack but this is why I'd rather the gloss black be painted on the headlight surround/teardrop intake rather than the front spoiler lip. Also because it makes more of an impact given it's higher up. Am I that doesn't understand why Porsche didn't do that?

Suncoast appears to have bumper and spoiler replacements now.
Not certain which model you have.
$290.00 for front bumper spoiler seems reasonable and available for all models. Basic plastic. Yours appears to be glossy from the image above. Turbo maybe? $799.95 for the turbo spoiler conversion.

I'm sorry for your loss, but that's something only YOU would notice.
If you are really concerned, you should get some epoxy from home depot and just patch it up! You wouldn't notice the difference.
