Maybe take advantage of the original design and simply "help" the air to move under the car or thru a better path than it has now (if at all possible)?

I Don't understand because the designs are essentially the same, the top grill is blocked, the fake fog light holes and the middle of the lower grill block, please elaborate if possible
