Aside from solid wheels and dropping it as far as he can, he (sorry--his shop guys) didn't do anything we do to lower drag, and instead increased it, probably pretty significantly. The upswept spoiler at the rear, the massive increase in frontal area, the pointless giant side intakes--I'm curious just how much higher the new CdA is.

Anyone else remember the old Pontiac "wider is better" commercials?
