I misjudged how close I was to a curb and scraped the front rim along the curb. I think it's just cosmetic but can it be fixed or do I need a new rim?

That's cosmetic, IMHO. There are companies that specialize in fixing this kind of 'rash...

Glad to see it is cosmetic. I had a rim suddenly develop a big hole. It was not cheap to replace even with the dealer discounting the rim for me.

Yeah. My BMW had some really low profile run-flat tires and over time I scratched and gouged the rims pretty badly on curbs. I waited until it was time for tires and had them refurb the rims too. They looked perfect afterward and it wasn't hugely expensive (but the tires were!). On a different car, I had the rims refurbed when I had some body work done. Same basic thing.
