I like these cars. Do a stealthy behind the grill block. Add a black edging air dam under the front bumper. Those are proven tried and true mods that are cheap and low profile. Get a scan gauge or ultra gauge and learn to hypermile that puppy, cutting the engine to coast... bump starting. When nee tires come do, go for taller tires that are LRR.

Those are all mods that change the look little and will benefit your bottom line.

Congrats on a fun new car.
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.
