Subscribed! Some quick and dirty CAD aeromod coast down testing would be awesome. Pile a bunch of the usual suspects onto it: grill block, airdam, wheel skirts, and such. The mods need not be built to last long, just long enough to sustain ABA coast down testing. Also, how susceptible to engine mods might it be? And does it have one of those irritating "awlways on" climate control AC systems?

EDIT: I forget... is this available in the USA?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
