2015 Ford Mustang Sales Numbers Continue to Climb

It’s no doubt Ford has a home run with the 2015 Ford Mustang. They built, in our opinion, the best looking Pony in history….and there have been quite a few good looking Ponies in the 50+ years. Sales for the 2015 Ford Mustang in March were up over 35% from a year ago March….35%, that is not a typo! Ford popped out over 12,500 Mustangs in March 2015. That’s over 400 per day, over 16 per hour! Just to compare, the 2nd best selling “sporty” car in March was the Challenger, with just over 5,000 selling. The Camaro is really looking dated and not selling well. The Camaro is coming out in 8-9 months, which might put a little damper on the new Mustang, but the numbers are still amazing!

Borla Performance Exhaust Leading the Way in 2015 Ford Mustangs!

When it comes to putting a new exhaust system on your 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, V6 or GT, there are no shortage of companies willing to take your money. But after doing quite a bit of research on the topic, we’ve decided that Borla really is the best bang for your buck. Borla has been manufacturing exhaust systems for decades, they build every single system in the USA, they only use quality stainless steel and the offer a million mile warranty. What more could you ask for?

Borla offers two different sound levels for the 2015 Ford Mustang. The Touring and the ATAK. The Touring system is a little deeper and louder than stock. A nice upgrade, but not too loud, a nice “between” option from stock and the ATAK. If you are a little more wild and you want to make sure your Mustang gets the attention it deserves, opt for the ATAK. This is quite a big louder and deeper tone than factory, and a few steps up from the Touring we spoke about earlier.

Borla offers entire exhaust systems, or just the muffler section, called “cat back”.

The 2015 Ford Mustang ATAK system, is louder and more aggressive. The photo below shows the ATAK syem in the axle back option.

If you’re looking to increase the exhaust flow for your Eco Boost Mustang, look no further than a premiere Borla exhaust. Manufactured by Borla, an industry leader in performance and build quality, this exhaust is sure to provide your Mustang with all of the best benefits of an Rear Section Exhaust. The ATAK Multi-Core exhaust system has become renowned for its incredible quality. This exhaust provides a fantastic aggressive exhaust note with minimal cabin drone, and will also give the Mustang optimal HP and Torque gains across the entire RPM range.

We found a few aftermarket parts vendors that carry the Borla exhaust line for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Both Southern Car Parts and RPI Designs are reputable companies that will be able to help you make an informed decision on which exhaust system is best for your needs and wants.

The Road Show Continues for the 2015 Mustang – Next Stop: Malaysia

The 2015 Ford Mustang has been a hit here at home, but also a hit globally. Ford has been on a road show of sorts, sporting their newest pony in the lineup. The 2015 Mustang was recently introduced in the Publika mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  This 2015 Ford Mustang is slightly different than the US version. It’s a right hand drive machine and doesn’t officially go on sale until 2016, making it a 2016 model once you can get your hands on one. We’ve learned from sources that the Mustang on display is a GT model, with 435HP…

So if you are a driver in Kuala Lumpur and really want to get your hands on one of these, you’ll have to wait another 6 months or so. But, if you are like us, we found the wait to be well worth it and we are enjoying our 2015 GT daily.

2015 Ford Mustang NoviStretch Front Bumper Mask Seen on Stangs

As we were browsing the internet today for everything Mustang, we stumbled across this great looking new product, the NoviStretch front bumper mask. The vendors claim that this mask can be installed in minutes and provides great protection to the front end of the 2015 Mustang. We read that the mask can be installed or removed in minutes, which would make it idea for a long haul car show drive, or even a late night summer cruise (don’t hold your breathe, summer isn’t even close yet!) But when summer finally comes, then this mask should protect your Pony from the harsh elements, or should we say June Bugs that seem to litter the roadways.

This mask is made from a soft, nylon like, stretch material that will not scratch paint or leave residue behind like the old bras we remember from the 1980s.

 

 

2015 Ford Mustang NoviStretch Front Bumper Mask/Bra

 

This 2015 Ford Mustang Stretch Mask is a great solution for those Mustang owners that do not want to drill into their brand new Pony. This mask is a very easy installation and can be removed without any permanent modifications to your car. Once installed you can quickly remove the NoviStretch mask and store it in your Mustang’s glove box. Once installed, you can put on and take off in a matter of minutes.

 

 

2015 Ford Mustang Front Bumper Mask

 

The mask folds up very small and will fit inside your glove box, or center console. These masks are great for protection on long road trips, or on your way to a car show.

 

2015 Ford Mustang NoviStretch Bumper Mask

 

This really looks like a great product to us. You can find this new mask at Southern Car Parts or RPI Designs. It looks like this mask will cost you a little under $150.00. Not too bad for the added protection to your new Pony.

What better time to get a beautiful Mustang that can keep up with the best of any sports car and also haul the entire family, while keeping the entire family safe. We congratulate Ford on this epic new Mustang.

Daytona Speed Master Wheel Brush Makes Cleaning Your Mustang Easy

Most all Mustang owners I know have a few of the same problems while cleaning their pride and joy. The most common is the thought of cleaning those chrome wheels. Let’s face it, cleaning those wheels is just a pain in the neck. It seems like you can spend over a hour polishing them, after you get them clean from all the brake dust….not to mention bending over in that awkward position and then ending up at the chiropractor in a week. Ok, it might not be that bad, but it’s still a pain. We are fans of the Daytona Speed Master Wheel Brush, better known as the Mustang Wheel Brush.

The Speed Master Wheel Brush is the most advanced wheel detailing brush today! Built for quick, effective cleaning of all wheels, the Speed Master Wheel Brush has a state-of-the-art design that cleans any wheel surface and any wheel design – without scratching! Brake dust beware! There’s nowhere to hide from the Speed Master Wheel Brush.

2015 Ford Mustang Daytona Speed Master Wheel Brush

The braking systems in many vehicles generate a lot of brake dust. Coincidentally, these vehicles often have the expensive alloy wheels with intricate spoke designs.  These wheels look unbelievable when they’re clean, but how are you going to keep them clean?
The Speed Master Wheel Brush. This advanced wheel brush has everything you want in a quality detail brush and much more. The staff and I at Palm Beach Motoring studied all the various brushes on the market and compared their pros and cons. Ultimately I took our wish list for the perfect wheel brush to Dean Henderson at EZ Detail Brush, Inc. Dean had already created the ultimate motorcycle detailing brush with the EZ Detail Brush. With a few modifications, I knew we could create the ultimate auto detail brush.
Dean manufactured the Speed Master Wheel Brush to my exact specifications, right down to the hot rod red bristles. In addition, the Speed Master Wheel Brush has a thicker, reinforced stem. It maintains its flexibility but the new stem is more rugged for frequent use on auto wheels. The bristles are slightly feathered on the ends to gently clean delicate wheel finishes, such as coated or plated wheels, without scratching.
Here are the benefits of the Speed Master Wheel Brush:
Soft, nonabrasive 2 inch bristles. Whether the wheels are aluminum or clear coated, they can be scratched by the wrong brush. The Speed Master Wheel Brush features nylon Nylex bristles that are both flexible and durable. The end of each bristle is feathered to provide an extra gentle touch on delicate wheel finishes. Use the Speed Master Wheel Brush on highly polished aluminum, chrome, stainless, clear coated, and painted wheels with confidence.

2015 Ford Mustang Daytona Speed Master Wheel Brush

Patented memory bristles regain their shape. Detail brushes can lose their shape and their functionality over time because they’re pressed into the grooves and crevices of your car. The Speed Master Wheel Brush has special memory bristles that regain their shape after every use. Simply rinse the brush in hot water and hang it upside down to dry. The bristles will settle back into their original shape, just like new. Memory bristles allow the Speed Master Wheel Brush to remain effective when other brushes fall short.
Chemical resistant.The Speed Master Wheel Brush’s synthetic bristles can withstand all wheel cleaners and degreasers, even powerful aluminum wheel cleaners. Whereas natural bristles can eventually become dry and brittle, the bristles on the Speed Master Wheel Brush stay smooth, soft, and flexible.
Fits all wheel designs.The Speed Master Wheel Brush may look like a big brush, but it fits in the smallest spaces. Clean between wire spokes and even between the brake caliper and the wheel! The flexible bristles easily fold against the stem to a ½ inch thickness. When you’re finished cleaning the wheels, rinse the Speed Master Wheel Brush in hot water and hang to dry to restore the brush’s original shape.
Reinforced, flexible stem. Many of today’s wheel designs give you full visibility through the wheel. Brake dust literally has nowhere to hide! The Speed Master Wheel Brush is the solution. The upgraded, vinyl-coated wire stem flexes to reach all the way through the wheel to clean the edge on the other side! The 13 inch stem is of a heavier gauge wire to give it flexibility and stability. The vinyl coating protects the wheel from scratching. In fact, if you pull the bristles apart, you can see that the wire is completely covered for the entire length of the brush.
Safe bonded tip. The tip of the Speed Master Wheel Brush is coated in vinyl to protect the wheel from contact. No part of the internal wire stem is visible so there’s no chance of it scratching the wheel as long as the bonded tip stays in tact.
Knuckle guard protects your hands. A rubber guard above the handle helps protect your hands from cleaners or scrapes, because we know you really get into your work.  An ergonomic handle makes cleaning comfortable.

2015 Ford Mustang Daytona Speed Master Wheel Brush

We found a couple of vendors that carry this Daytona Wheel Brush, both Southern Car Parts and RPI Designs. Price is reasonable, less than $28.00. The way we look at it, that $28.00 will save you time for years to come and is well worth it.

2015 Ford Mustang Caliper Covers from MGP Hit the Roads

Many 2015 Ford Mustang owners love their cars, and rightfully so, but many of these same Mustang owners will tell you that the calipers on the car, from Ford, just don’t cut it. The entire car is beautifully designed, but the calipers fall a little short. MGP has been in the caliper cover business for many years and just released a handful of great looking caliper cover sets for the 2015 Ford Mustang. These caliper covers install with basic hand tools in just a matter of moments…for a few minutes of work these will really change the entire look of the Mustang.

2015 Ford Mustang Now Available in China

Ford has began to export the Detroit built 2015 Ford Mustang to many overseas countries as we have mentioned previously. Well Ford has just began to ship some Pony’s to China. We found that fans in China will have to come up with nearly $130,000.00 if they want to drive a Mustang GT down the streets of Shanghai. This is partly due to the fact that Ford charges more because of all the changes they need to make for a car leaving our shores. But the Chinese government also imposes a huge tax on cars with “large engines”. This tax can run in excess of 66% of purchase price.

2015 Ford Mustang Arrives in China

2015 Ford Mustang Arrives in China

Ford is offering the Mustang in the EcoBoost, V6 and GT models. Even with the enormous price tag, Ford says sales are “exceeding” their own expectations. We believe them. Ford just released the sales numbers for January 2015……..over 112,000 Mustangs sold in January. That is an increase of nearly 20 percent from a year ago January. We expect this 6th Generation Mustang to live long and continue to produce huge sales numbers for many years to come. If the Chinese start to love this car as much as Americans….the sky is truly the limit!

APR Performance Introduces Carbon Fiber Front Splitter for 2015 Ford Mustang

Mustang owners are lucky in the fact that all 2015’s come from the factory with a front splitter. The only problem is the front splitter is just black plastic and might be a little boring. We found the aftermarket parts company APR Performance, they created a front splitter that is 100% real carbon fiber and replaces the existing, plastic splitter on all Mustangs.

2015 Ford Mustang GT350R is BAD!!

Mustang fans get yourselves ready…..the GT350R is about to launch and we might even say it’s the baddest Mustang ever built….How would you like to have 500HP under your right foot in the matter of a second? Well the GT350R is equipped with a massive 500HP 5.2L V8 engine that any hardcore enthusiast can be proud to call their own. Ford has equipped the GT350R with a Torsen limited slip differential to make sure that horsepower makes it to the ground. Not only has Ford given this beast a ton of horsepower but they also have equipped the Mustang with carbon fiber wheels. Yes, you heard that right. Carbon fiber wheels. These wheels will save you 13 pounds per wheel.

Avoid Costly Bumper Damage on your 2015 Ford Mustang With Curb Alert

We have a great tip for all of you 2015 Ford Mustang owners. Ford was generous to include a front splitter on all 2015 Ford Mustang models. This beautiful front splitter can become a nightmare very quickly when pulling into a parking spot or perhaps an aggressive speed bump. We’ve seen and heard the stories from Mustang owners, how they lose or damaged their front splitter while parking. We called local dealerships and a new front splitter from Ford will set you back about $300.00. A very easy and less expensive way to avoid replacing your front splitter on a regular basis is either, don’t drive your Mustang, or simple purchase a Curb Alert bumper warning protection system. These nifty little units sell for roughly $149.00 and will warn you as you approach a curb or high area in the road.

2015 Ford Mustang Curb Alert

2015 Ford Mustang Curb Alert

The 2015 Ford Mustang Curb Alert is very easy to install and does not put a drain on your battery when the car is not on. Using a patented infrared technology, the front mounted sensor is calibrated to a warning distance of anywhere from 8-28″ (you decide with whatever you feel comfortable with). The warning alarm is hidden in the car and will give you three gentle tones when you are within a specified distance to the curb. The system gives you a short beep every time you start your car to let you know the system is active.

The Mustang Curb Alert is one of a kind and is a gadget that will save you money in the long run, preventing front end damage to any car that is low enough to be vulnerable to a Curb. Do not take a chance, get the Curb Alert to prevent curb damage.

  • Universal Mount (All Makes and Models)
  • Warns with an audible alarm before striking a curb that could damage your front bumper and/or spoiler.
  • Prevents embarrassing parking lot moments and sounds when your bumper or front spoiler hits a curb.
  • Sensor can mount in a discrete manner in the front end of most any vehicle and does not require any drilling.
  • Advanced infra-red triangulation technology and specialized software embedded for reliable operation.
  • Warning distance is adjustable from 8-28 inches. (Bumper to curb)
  • Removable when necessary with out leaving any holes as evidence.
  • Automatic power-up on vehicle ignition; never a battery drain.
  • Alert sound volume can be set to High, Low, or Mute inside vehicle.
  • Installation kit includes installation procedures, all wiring, wire ties, sensor calibration procedures, and user guide.

We found the curb alert over at the vendor www.rpidesigns.com and also www.southerncarparts.com. The Curb Alert can be purchased directly from one of these vendors, either here, or here.

 

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Requires Hi-Grade Fuel

The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost comes equipped with a turbo charged 4 cylinder motor. We all have vivid memories of the last Mustangs that came with 4 cylinders….please help us forget. This new 2015 Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost really pounds out a lot of power, numbers we find claim 310hp and 320ft lp torque. Not too shabby for a Mustang with 4 cylinders – heck those numbers are impressive.

The good news about the EcoBoost requiring hi-grade fuel is the fact that the fuel prices have dropped about 50% throughout the United States in the past six months. We hope they stay at these prices for many years to come. The EcoBoost really loses a lot of it’s power when regular 87 unleaded is pumped into it’s engine. The web forum www.mustang6g.com has posted reports of large power loses when lower grade fuel is used. We do not have exact numbers, but from what we see over at Mustang6G it would seem the users are right.

To recap, if you own a 2015 Mustang EcoBoost then you will want to make sure you pump in the expensive stuff if you want to achieve ultimate performance. If you aren’t worried about drag racing, then opt for the lower grade fuel and save money in your pocket book.

2015 Ford Mustang is Detroit Free Press Car of the Year!

Listen up all Ford Mustang fans….Ford has done it again. The 2015 Mustang is the official car of the year over at Detroit Free Press. Fifty years after the first Mustang rolled off the line Ford has managed, once again, to put the Mustang at the top of the charts…and who can disagree? This new Ford Mustang is just an all around amazing piece of American engineering!

2015 Ford Mustang Interior

2015 Ford Mustang Interior

Ford has done a great job with the new 2015 Mustang. From the choice of engines, a small but powerful 4cyl turbo “Eco-Boost” engine, a V6 engine or the dominate 5.0L V8 that we’ve all come to love over the decades.  But Ford did more than put sweet engines in these Mustangs. Ford has managed to bring the interior to levels we’ve not seen in a Mustang before. The fit, material and craftsmanship is amazing.

2015 Ford Mustang Exterior

2015 Ford Mustang Exterior

Ford didn’t stop with the interior or the the engines. The exterior got a complete face lift and revamp. The front splitter and side skirts really make this new Mustang look so aggressive. The headlights are awesome and the new wheel choices would make any car nut excited. Congratulations Ford, you deserve the car of the year!
