There's always this tail

There's always this tail spoiler for extra mpg:

But only if you own a new VW Beetle.

I consulted the provider who carries the polymer stuff. He told me that polycarb is durable when molded into "spheric" bodies; i.e. orb, elliptoid orb etc. or boxes. Otherwise he said it would be way too elastic and wobbly and when it wobbles it will tear from the pin-down areas.
As for aircraft material; I know of a carbon fiber provider but that stuff is astronomically expensive. I' d rather let it stay as is...

Thank you for the ideas though. I have rims which I am planning to equip with tiny splitters. (Please see attached pic of my car)

Well yes


The Daewoo (or Chevy) Kalos is dreadful... But I just love the Suzy... They sell the 1.3 "Smart 4 wheel drive" versions here.
It is supposed to kick in extra drive and traction when needed...

Well in Europe we usually drive this kinda stuff. We do not even dream of 3.5 4.3 and 5.4 liter engines except for semis with 18 wheels
