Frontal area estimate based upon histogram measurement taken from car blueprint.
After I hit the road barrier had whole front bumper and radiator replaced (02/2013), since that i never managed to get pre-accident mileage.

Build Thread:
Current Mods: flush cover for bucket style fog lights (first 2011 to 2013, than again 07/2015 to 01/2016), didn't withstand car wash. Slightly increased tire pressure (40 psi, 44 psi is sidewall max), upper grille block (winter time only), roof rails removed (08/2015), cargo windows covered with reflective foil (07/2015,summer time only)

Planned Mods: depends on "wife approval factor". I think of:
LED DRL's, (partial) belly pan, flush wheel covers, removable wheel skirts, gaps and grooves filled with silicone seal (weatherproofing, aero is just added benefit).
