Just curious, anyone thought about, or actually done any?

Let's face it, our car is an non-aerodynamic block smashing its way through the air. There's not a lot we can do about that. But it does seem like Mitsubishi hasn't exactly done much easy work either. Here's some of the things I was thinking:

1. Get wheel covers or full face mag alloy wheels?
2. Deleting mudguards and some things that look like air deflectors near the front?
3. Using minimum thickness oil in engine and diffs?
4. Creating an under-body tray to reduce under car turbulence?

I'm not likely to do any of this work while the car is under warranty - unless I find a really cheap set of 18" full face mags, but has anyone else been more adventurous?
