I don't disagree that the mirrors are a good mod to attempt. But in thinking about the lowest fruit, I include complexity and reversibility and possible police hazzards. One can experiment with wheel well covers almost for free, using cardboard, then build with materials much cheaper than cameras and much less likely to get a cop on you. That's all... the A2 windtunnel experience & results are relevant here, probably.

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.
