The smoothed up, sealed up front end looks good. Most modern cars I've seen have the spats in front of the front tires slightly more toward the center of the vehicle. I like the rear wheel skirts but I am not too sure about the angle of the Kammback. I don't have the aerodynamic template right in front of me but it looks like it should be steeper and should taper in on the sides too.
60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun
