Got .35, maybe I can improve a bit the airflow with a blocked grill, narrow tires, maybe I can search in fiat parts if I can put some other side mirrors (mines look like truck mirrors! :O )
I can work on the air flow underneath the car,
Second, there is a lot of things one could do with modifying the underbody air flow. I've been looking for this for my Opel Zafira this morning. Found this image in this forum, for instance. Mercedes apparently did a lot of research into making their CLA class more aerodynamic. So I found the original image



on the intertubes, and then did close-ups of the parts I found interesting and screen-shotted them.

I'm going to look at making some sort of rear spoiler, like this one
