Default Also cracked lower front bumper

I have a 4 month old 2011 WRX Limited 5 door w/SPT Catback exhaust.

I have seen the other quip replies about 'just drive better' or AWD doesn't make you a better driver but I have been driving over 30 years and at slow speeds pushed against snowbanks/ice and never had this much damage.

Will post pictures but I have a crack on lower drivers side that starts about 12 inches from the edge and is about 4 inches from the bottom of the lowest part of bumper. The nice part is the leftmost part of crack goes down and now I have a flapping part of bumper.

The plastic seems very hard (and thin) for a part that would be exposed hence the cracking.

First Subaru and otherwise pretty happy with it. I am a little scared that its that fragile.

Anyhow - I have read other comments and I am guessing the best route for a repair (since mine is hanging down and not just a crack) is replacing the bumper cover? Is there a aftermarket unit that might be a BIT more resilient? or at least more flexible?
