Unhappy Paint damage on side skirts

I have 4k miles on my X with pretty heavy stone damage on the side skirts forward of the rear wheels.
I was wondering if this problem also affects those vehicles that have the factory Aero package???

I bought a RR pen from my dealership a while back, they run about $10. I was a bit skeptical at first since I've never used a pen for touch up, but it goes on really easy and the paint is nice and thin which makes it very easy to fill in the damage and wipe/polish it flush. I'm not wild about the 2 step (paint + clear coat) but you can't have everything.

Touch up paint pen is a must for all X owners as rock chips are inevitable.
