Hey guys

What's up, I was looking for some build threads on "eco-modding".. more specifically fuel economy and found this site. There were some nice mod ideas in the efficiency section.
I'm personally not that much into "fuel consumption is bad.. save the planet" type of person and I noticed there were a lot of hippies on this site (no offense.. but you gotta admit it).

I'm just trying to find some builds were "looking like a normal car" and "not looking like a retard" came into the equation.
I personally think that things like hypermiling are ok ideas but taken way over the edge.. some things are just plain stupid and piss people off.

Enough of that anyways, I'm planning on buying a Toyota Corolla next year and was looking for some ideas I didn't know of already. My current car is a Honda Prelude and I barely drive it anymore since I've been in university.

So yeah, if some of you could be helpful and point me to the "keeping with the practical" build threads that would be great. Hope I didn't offend anyone lol, just my opinion, probably not yours.

I'd just look at the 65+ mods list. Pick the ones you think won't make your car ugly. They all have rough ratings on difficulty, mpg impact and cost.
