new member 02 merc c230 kompressor

Hi just stumbled upon you guys site while checking out some prius mods as I am looking to get into something more fuel efficient. but now ive been lurking for the past 3 hours or so and learning lots. the aero mods are inspiring makes me wonder if my 02 c230 might be a good candidate for mods. my best mileage in the c230 was 38mpg. its a 6 speed manual and its the hatchback.

this is a picture of it at the track with some low budget aero

anyhow looking over the site got me to thinking the car is not half bad already aerodynamically, it already has a plastic underbelly pan, small gaps at the wheels, and a good rear end shape. I am wondering now if maybe some grill inserts might be in order.

anyhow great site I hope to learn a lot.
