That's a good question. I suspect the flow behind the front wheels on the Insight is much better than the Metro/Firefly. I should tuft test it to compare.

There was a member here who made front skirts for his gen. 1 Insight. This was a while back, a few years ago at least. If I recall, he got to work on one of the first mornings after he put them on... and they were no longer ON. I don't think he tried again. I did a quick search just now, but couldn't find the thread.
