I haven't done any aero mods yet, other than fiddling with a partial grill block a couple of summers ago. Over the holidays, I'm going to get underneath the car with some choroplast, garden edging, bolts, and some insulation foam to see if I can't improve the underbody a little bit. It's reasonably flat, as is, so I'm not sure how much of an improvement I'm likely to see.

As for my dyno place, I rub it in their faces, and they can't say too much about it. I can go to/from the shop, put down some reasonably serious numbers for a 4-door saloon that doesn't look like it's got much under the hood at all, and then drive home getting fuel economy that's better than most of the other cars on the road.

I suppose it helps that it'll keep pace with, if not walk, a Camaro SS, and it'll climb mountains in the winter... :-D
