no, it actually doesnt, that is a joke. If you read earlier he got "offered" 24k trade in if it was stock. 19k is a joke, they are going to turn around and put a 27k price tag on it, then sell it for 25k. I traded my 08 Sti that wasn't stock nor as modded as his and got a 03 corvette Z06 and 2k cash in my hand....I basically got 22k for my car based on my deal, and my car had a busted-ish front bumper that barely was hanging on (got damaged when delivering the car to the dealer haha oops) and had more miles then Zach's and less mods. I could have held out for 24ish but for some dumb reason I rushed things, and still got a decent deal.
I am confident Zach will at least happy in the end with whatever deal he goes with, but 19k is a joke. He is in a hard/unique situation with a fully built "newer" car.
