My 2008 LB

I just purchased this Yaris Aug 2016, I'm surprised how well it is holding up for an 8 yr old vehicle, being in Canada where road salt is used in winter on icy roads! Some rust, but not too much, compared to my other car a Hyundai Accent.

I've been doing a little maintenance, especially undercarriage rust cleaning/proofing, I disabled the original DRL (inspired by other YW members) and added eagle-eye DRL/fog! Had to do a little handy work to mount the eagle-eye, they came individually, sorry no photos on the process, I wasn't sure how they were to turn up.

I also purchased the set of alloy wheels (OEM) from an ex-Yaris owner, they were pretty beat up/curb rashes, I had to refurbished and painted new colour, using Dupli-color wheel paint and clearcoat.

I removed the badges from the rear hatch, for easy cleaning/waxing.

Nice

I've been on the fence about removing badges for a long time. Can't make up my mind. Yours looks great.

It sure gives a cleaner look, however the emblems do leave their marks, the paint work appears slightly darker (original shade) compared to the rest of the hatch.

if you use a cutting agent, buff, (clay bar glove works good too) wax, and polish it will blend in.
