Anybody know if MVS is still in business? I can't seem to raise them.

I can't imagine they are selling many of these at $4,000 a pop.

Apparently Michigan Vehicle Solutions is still in bidness (as of late January 2020) and selling their Aero-X caps.

Pricey as hell, but they seem to have worked out all the bugs and they appear to be a very 'professional' and high quality product.

ROAD and TRACK,I believe,reported on an extended,off-road trip in a RAPTOR.They averaged 8-mpg.Perhaps owners are comfortable with robbery.
