Mirror deletes is something I'm not so favorable. I'd rather get mirrors from a sports motorcycle due to their aerodynamic profile.

On a truck i'll keep my mirrors, but i always turn and look on the passenger side instead of use the mirror especially in this car since basically the whole side is glass. On the driver's side i'll keep the mirror although i may change to a motorcycle one now that you mention it, i hadn't thought of it even though i walk right by my bike every day and normally bump right into the mirror.......

I built a kammback, lowered the air dam a couple inches, and did a warm air intake, and did some dwl as best i could without any instrumentation

I have no idea why the pics are upside down
I hope i can get the same mileage on my way home. I dont know what helped the most but i think the kammback helped significantly.
