Isn't it effective in this kind of car?
Volkswagen wrote the book on aerodynamic detail optimization,beginning in the mid-1970s.It's extremely unlikely that you could improve on what they've already done,short of spending $100,000 US in a full-scale wind tunnel,doing tweaks.And none of that would really show in fuel economy.
That said,you could do some things that would really make a difference,but none of it would be stealthly.All the mods would be immediately obvious to the most casual of viewers.
Lower drag is about the 'look.'
From where you're starting from,all the low-hanging fruit is already picked.
