Aftermarket parts prices go down after release of 2015?

Hey guys, I was thinking about this last night as I've got a rather long list of goodies I want to buy for my 2013. With the release of the redesigned mustang in 2015, will aftermarket prices on parts like exhaust, tuners, etc, drop slowly over time, or is it a stretch to think they'll drop rather considerably as demand ramps up for the new model and the older models start getting traded in? Anyone notice if it happened to the pre '05 parts?

Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part. I would imagine the used market will have more parts as users go back to stock before trading in for the new model.
All I know id I'm having a really hard time justifying $700 for a axelback muffler setup just for sound.

I really don't think so.

Ford is keeping the 3.7 for use in the 2015. I think we may start getting more aftermarket parts for our engines made by the aftermarket but I'll bet you that prices will not go down.

Life is pretty short so if you want a set of axlebacks for your Mustang just give up going out to dinner and Movies or some other frill to save up and get them.

The only way they go down is if they are on sale.
As for the $1200 I spent on my exhaust, will it ever do anything to pay for itself, nope. But the Smiles per gallon are nice.

Hey Siber Expres

You have the right idea.

It does not matter what the mod will cost if it makes you happy. If you can't afford what you want you need to get an extra job to pay for your toys. I, As well as many others did over the years.

Nah, that's really not what I meant. I can certainly afford to spend some money on my mustang, but I was asking the question because it would suck if I spent a bunch of cash on upgrades only to watch the prices fall on the parts within a year. I'm planning on storing the stang during the winter months, so I'm in no hurry to purchase any major parts until spring. I understand when a new model comes out, the cost of R&D is passed on to the end user in many instances, so I was just wondering if aftermarket parts are one of those.

I mean, c'mon, who doesn't like saving money?

The prices will not drop for years and years if even then. But if the 2015 turns out to be a hit we will see an influx in used parts coming up for sale.

Including the pre 2015 Mustangs.

I think you will see a slight reduction in aftermarket parts prices, but it will most likely be in 2016 and later fro the pre 2015 Mustangs. I've noticed the cost for aftermarket parts for the earlier Mustangs (pre 2010), have come down, and are cheaper on Ebay as well.

The inventory will also go down too.

Correct me if I'm wrong(and I'm sure you guys will) , but I would imagine inventory shrinkage wouldn't be a huge issue except for maybe expensive mod parts like turbos, superchargers, etc. Since the mustang has a huge following, and seems to have a number of major manufacturers, aftermarket parts resellers like AM, CJ's, and the like. My winter car is a 2001 Jeep Cherokee that still has a pretty big user base with a number of aftermarket companies and manufacturers. The number of Cherokees will obviously decline due to age and accidents, etc but it's certainly not as bad a market as say mid seventies Bronco parts where you rely on a small handful of smaller resellers or ebay.

I'm rambling a bit, but I doubt we'll have an issue finding most of the current aftermarket parts say ten years from now. By then, alot of us will have moved on to the newer and better, and our cars will be in the hands of high schoolers with new licenses and the need for speed and mayhem.

Anyways, I'm gonna bite the bullet and order new rims, Foose Legends and tires, and FRPP sport axelbacks from AM once I hit 50 posts to get the discount.
