Just picked up new M3 - need advice

Hey guys, I just picked up a used (new to me) '11 M3, absolutely loving it so far. The only thing that's bothering me is that the previous owner did not install a clear bra on the car and despite having only 3600 miles there are some chips and marring from debris. Most of this is on the front bumper, side skirts behind the front wheels and the rear bumper behind the rear wheels.

I really want to get this repaired and then get the clear bra installed. I just wanted to ask what are my options? Will I have to fully repaint the front bumper, rockers, and rear bumper? Or can those areas typically be repaired without a full repaint? Also, after I get these areas repaired, I will obviously cover the bumper in clear film. But are behind the front wheels and behind the rear wheels (inner fender portions) areas that you guys usually cover? I wasn't sure if it was feasible or not given the body ones of the car.
