New car new project

My old Suzuki Swift was almost dead (killed by rust). So i bought a Opel Corsa aka Vauxhall Nova.

A 1.4 injection 4 cylinder engine whit 44 kw is inside. Now i also want to make this car more FE. I already installed my ecometer from the Swift in it. But now what to do next? Any idea for some airomods?

Here i have some pics (sorry for the blurry one).

I want to lower the car a little. And some other mirrors will also help. And i want a airdam.

Any idea is welcome

NOW INTERACTIVE! Joystick controls Fry's left ear.

Why not check out the other car projects here? Mods would likely be mostly the same.

Wow, that looks to have some good aero features built in already. How about a passenger mirror delete and a belly pan?

Check google for some information about "Corsa Eco3"

Try to increase the ignition timing from 10deg to about 12-14deg ,and keep 2.2-2.4atm in wheels.
