Looks like mine after i got back from Norway a couple years ago. Nothing 10 minutes with a jet wash can't fix.

Man, it must be so hard for you guys on the East to keep a car looking fresh and crispy. Would drive me nuts!

Hehe mud drops on my driveway when I park.

It's fall, and it's a muddy. It doesn't help TBH.

The city is developing our area and roads are being enlarged. Even then, trucks hauling soil out of the construction zone dont help and lay mud on all the streets going out of the city. They try to mitigate, but that also means spraying water everywhere.. fun times

At least your Yaris is performing well, and soon you'll have great roads.

Amen! Mud is bothersome, but not nearly so much as the salt rime from over-salting the roads. Municipalities and the province seems to love dumping an excess of both salt and gravel on roads and highways (salt = rot, gravel = chipped paint and windshields). It seems particulary bad towards the spring when they seem to want to get rid of the excess to maintain the next year's budget. This insideous concoction finds it way into cracks and crevices and does its nasty work. I don't drive my RS in the winter at all. My van and 08 Yaris look like the OP's pic, but rather than mud, it's transmission fluid and heavy oil that covers the lower sections and all inner panels of my cars. It's always a chore to get that crap off in the spring, but definitely worth the effort. I cringe when I see brand new cars, complete with expensive alloys driving around covered in a thick coat of salt. Only oil-coated steel wheels for my vehicles in winter!

Typical car in the winter, around here:
