I also used this calculator which was pretty cool IMO. Vehicle aerodynamics I got .35 from it and other online specs, it was pretty hard to find info about my car. I also got this from it : CD = 0.360; CDA = 8.11 ft²; CLA = 7.22 ft² __________________ Good Bye Insight Hello 6.7 Diesel Truck! **My First Hybrid Insight**
