I don't see that being a quick fix. Can't really cover that up. Looks like a job for a full on wheel repair. Search local shops, should not be too expensive.

Call one or two of the mobile wheel refinishers and get a quote. It may not be as much as you think but you won't know until you call. They will come to your workplace or home. The dealers use the too so don't go to the dealer or you'll get with with their markup.

Good luck.

Should be repairable. Keep in mind that the OEM paints wheels using a powder coating process. Most aftermarket repair shops use Wurth spray (wet paints) to repair. Color should match fine, but the material is not the same as used in factory.

Looks like a simple repair that a mobile wheel repair guy could do, if you didn't want to do it yourself.

how noticeable is the damage after repair? This is my first car and I never repaired rims before. I probably have to ask around to find someone good local

It will look amazing. The wheels guys that do this are dam good. I have had a few repaired and only if you get very very close can you tell. The average person would never ever notice

I would find a wheel shop...local BMW dealer might have a recommendation? I have seen a few wheel repairs and the results have been great. A friend of mine had some curb rash fixed on a 911 turbo. The results were so good the repaired wheel looked better then the other 3 wheels!
I can't remember the price but it was not too bad. Don't do a cheap cover up...get it repaired!

I have to get my wife's wheel repaired from some curbage that was a little more severe than this. The repair came out flawless, they did an excellent repair.

It was done by my local Hyundai's contractors, whoever they are. It was also repaired under warranty so I don't know cost.
