I picked this up two weeks ago. Only had rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber stubby antenna, new leather shift ****, and clear bra on door cups on for now.

Had it for a week. However I found that its virtually impossible to keep this car clean/scratch free. Can someone please post a video or some suggestions on how to wash it, what products, and how much they cost.

Welcome to the club.

And there is at least 1 thread already dedicated to cleaning products and tips. I'd post the link but I'm on my phone.

Is this rain or you just washed the car? Did the drops turn into ugly spots??

It's rain. I love how raindrops look on the black... but unfortunately, yes, it dirtied her up a bit. Nothing a little bath couldn't take care of the day after though.

I actually haven't done the rear with the gold coloring yet. I did it all black a while back but the double sided tape I used was too thick and you can see it. I got some new tape and will paint/re-stick the rear emblem in the coming days.. the front was my test subject ;p

The front is clipped into the bumper. i did a little tugging to get it out. After its out the scion emblem pulls out of the oval black plastic.. I just painted the plastic then put it back together. The rear one was much trickier. it is 3m taped and has two pegs that go into the garnish. A heat gun and floss to get that off then goo gone to get the remainder tape off. then i cut out a piece of red vinyl and stuck it to the garnish then sealed her all up.. heres a pic of the rear one...
