New Matrix owner

Hello all. I'm a fairly new owner of a 2003 Toyota Matrix. Its a base model with 5 speed manual transmission. Great car so far. The wife really love the space and gas mileage as it. But, I'm looking to bump that up a bit. Since the weather has warmed up I've been getting consistantly 35-36 mpg. The goal is at least 50.

It currently has a few modifications done to it (mostly by the previous owner). They include:
Konig rims with performance tires (these stay, I like my corners )
Eibach lowering springs
Greddy E-manage blue
Zeitronix Zt-2
Scangauge II (just got this and love it)

It came with a TRD cold air intake, but its not currently installed. I'm not sure if I will be installing it or not yet.

I see you have a fairly elaborate garage feature here. Its pretty nice and I've plugged in a bit of information and all my fill ups that have gone into the car since I bought it. I also see at least one person I already know from another forum. Hello diamond larry. I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of you and tweaking this thing a bit further.

Here is a picture of the car:

i don't know, but 06 tdi's get less mpg and are heavier... i'm aiming for a 00-03... i'm guessing it was 06... the last year for tdi in california.
