Were I and my degree in aerodynamics to guess I'd say boundary layer attachment isn't the iQ's aerodynamic problem. The body seems too short for that. If anything at speed the big trailing vortex drag is the issue. Vortex drag is probably handled about as well as can be with a TRD spoiler and the stock trip panels on the rear outboard columns. If boundary layer attachment were an issue the trip panels wouldn't be so far back.

Your vortex generators are not the dumbest aerodynamic attempt I've ever seen on an iQ. THAT award goes to the evasive spoiler: Evasive Scion iQ Picture #2

Aesthetically I think your lil' fins look pretty good. And they're small enough, and swept back as to not do too much drag damage.
