Hit the curb while taking a left!

So today while taking a left turn i completely forgot there is a curb on the left. I took a left turn a bit before I should have and my x1 went over the curb from the centre of the passenger side-skirt and I heard some noise and immediately braked before my rear tyre got over it. The extremely inner bottom part of the side skirt got minor scratches and I think I damaged the jack point. The scratch can only be seen if you actually lie down and peep. Other than that I could not spot any damage as such as the whole rear bottom area of the car is covered with plastic. You think I should still take it to the dealership and get it inspected?

if you really worry about it, taking it to the dealer eases you a lot.

I'm guessing your speed was not that much at all (given that you had the time to stop prior to your rear tyre reaching), so you'll be fine.

It is perfectly fine, those skirts below on the sides are to protect the body from being hit, here in India with our road conditions, my side skirts already gives a look of having gone through a war zone
