No offense, I'm not going to go through and source every piece of info. The numbers will vary, but not by that much. You can see generally where your car sits against the pool of cars on the list. So, when someone comes on the site and says they have a frontal area of 19ft^2 you can know that is pretty small.
So, basically its as good as its probably going to get.


Thanks for the added info NachtRitter and Neil. It will be added.
