Eh, if I start looking at it closely I could go crazy chasing down little dirt and dust spots, but mostly I just wipe off the big splatters behind the wheels when I happen to notice them. I'm sure once winter really gets going here and I get a good layer of sand and grime on it I won't even think about it any more.

Best thing to do is to get some sort of paint protection done and keep it waxed, along with rinsing it often, all of that goes a long way into keeping the paint mint along with making it easy to maintain.

x2 best thing to do right away, longer you wait the more it can cost you.

I have an appointment for a pearl nano coating on Friday. This will be my first time having a protective coating done on a car, so I'm interested in seeing what it's like.

Glad to see you're going through with it since you have to deal with four seasons. This will go a long way in making it easier to maintain during the messy winter season.

I think it even prolongs the damage sun does to paint.

It actually does look great in the snow but since it's white, you're going to have to wash it a bit more often to keep the muddy brown at bay.

Your Scion iA will look amazing during a gentle snowfall.

I live in Dodge City, KS, and I've only seen one Scion iA out and about. It was Polar White and it looked good. I still like this car - there's one 388 miles to the west at Mountain States Scion that is Pulse color (love the red iA's) and is the 6-speed manual transmission. It's selling for $15,711. Fair deal I think. I drive a 2011 Kia Soul 5-speed stick and my wife wants ta just hold on to it. The thing is the car has 59,115 miles on it and runs great. We owe about $11,100 on the car - what the dealer would give us is anybody's question. I remain interested in the Scion iA.
