Looking at aero improvements.

Welcome to the forum!

Done any modifications yet? Any thoughts on what's next?

Hi Metro,
I have installed a small bib spoiler on the front.
Air flow around the rear is a major issue.
Drivers of the sedan version are commonly getting 10-15% better fuel consumption.
Something needs to be done about the flow on the sides of the car at the rear.
Full wheel spats with something behind to separate the flow would be good, but probably won’t be happening.
Looking for something like a small, self-adhesive gurney flap to clean up flow on the sides.
I will have to work on a picture to show this better.

Your post count will have to be higher to post the pic. For the benefit of the lurkers, here's the Mark IV estate:

I can see why the sedan does better, it has a well-optimized roofline [over less space].

Thanks Freebeard.
Julian Edgar, in one of his videos demonstrated the deficiencies, via dust deposition on the back of the car. Argh! Can’t post links yet!
A search of “Julian Edgar dusty bums” will find the utube video.

It used to be five posts to show links and/or pictures. It may have been raised.

It's your thread. Hammer it until it works.

Do you know the history of when J. Edgar blew through here?

No

65whitelion 04-26-2022 09:45 PM

I think he lives not too far from me

65whitelion 04-26-2022 09:46 PM

Where are you based, Freebeard?

What engine does it have? The Peugeot-designed 2.0L turbodiesel?
