that for sure dealer will do a chargeback on you when car is returned (if you don't have it repaired). Looks to me it is more than a a scratch, it looks like a sizable paint chip. If you do the paint chip repair yourself, it may look even more uglier due to the size.

Touch up paint will be sufficient.

I have a similar issue on my leased vehicle, more of a dent than scratch though. Has anyone used a company like "Dent Transformer"? Would love some feedback if so.

If you’re not keeping it post lease, I’d just use a touch up pen and be done with it.
