(that's just a picture I found on the web). There's room there for a Kammy
Hougtimo: from what I can see on your picture, your car has a rubber airdam under the bumper. That's good. Would you be willing to sacrifice those alloy wheels for mooncaps and/or rear wheel skirts? Also, think about chopping, or at least folding, the passenger side mirror. I drove my family's Opel Corsa for years and it had huge side mirrors which had to be folded when in the garage, so I only bothered to unfold the driver's side.

I did this to my Astra, but I cannot prove I save fuel. My feeling is I did...The wind noise seems also to be lowered. If you have a board computer and you will do such thing, maybe you can see a difference.
the lower side panels I placed because, you know, in that area is a kind of "wind trap". The central grill block is ugly, but the "no badge" grill I've rework was waved...
