Default 2011 STi Black, Deep mirror scratch, suggestions?!

So I had a huge housewarming party and probably shouldnt have left my car so close to the walkway into my house, but my buddy was walking by and his watch took this nice scratch out of my driver side mirror on my pretty black 2011 STi sedan :/ Any tips on getting this fixed? as you can see it goes all the way down to the plastic.

Appreciate all suggestions.

Is that a knockoff of Dr. Colorchip?

Go with touch up paint first and see how you like it, if it is still bugging you then go out and buy a new cover.
