Wow pgfpro, your sons car was nice! pity someone else thought it would be nicer in their driveway

i put the aero template on it last night out of curiosity and it follows the roofline from the top of the windscreen all the way to the end of the spoiler perfectly, no wonder it coasts so much better than all of my other cars

I want to build a small kammback and do a grill block to improve the coasts even more, but i dont want it to look like a racecar to avoid attention. So no big drag style airdams or wings

How much of a kammback do you need to make a noticable difference? will adding 3 or 4" to the stock spoiler in line with the template help at all?

Has anyone done a front bellypan vs front lip comparo on these? would i be better off with the stock bumper and a belly pan, a small lip, or a combo of both?
