The black marks close to the wheel looks like it would buff out with some 3m fast cut plus.
The other marks have been caused by the bumper being compressed against the mounting bracket, which would be extremely difficult to repair.

You 'could' haggle the cost of a new bumper and painting/fitting (circa 500 new), then buy a GB sticker and pocket the difference...
