How Do Aftermarket Parts Affect Car Resale Value?

Aftermarket parts and accessories are a great way for you to customize your car, truck or SUV – but do they add value when it is time to sell your vehicle? Families may want to add a bike rack or tow package for their next adventure and drivers who love performance may want to upgrade the wheels and tires. No matter how you choose to upgrade your car, truck or SUV, you may want to know – how do aftermarket parts affect car resale value? Find out with this quick overview created by The Car Depot in Birmingham, AL.

Should You Sell Your Car with Aftermarket Parts and Accessories?

Aftermarket parts can upgrade performance and replace standard OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts in your used car, truck or SUV. A select list of aftermarket parts will increase resale value of your vehicle when you choose to sell at The Car Depot. Parts that increase performance, style, entertainment and more have the potential to raise the value of your vehicle – but a vehicle that is 100% custom may not appeal to more buyers and can have a negative impact.

Here is a look at popular aftermarket parts and features that may help increase the resale value of your vehicle.

  • Alloy Wheels
  • Tires
  • Stereo Systems
  • Body Kits
  • Exhaust Systems
  • Interior and Exterior Lighting Systems

In addition to aftermarket performance parts that replace the standard OEM parts, aftermarket accessories have the potential to upgrade the value of your vehicle. Families who love outdoor adventures may be drawn to used vehicles that are already equipped with bike racks, cargo carriers, tow packages and more accessories that can upgrade their weekend adventure – which can improve the resale value.
