Honestly, 19k for a 08 sti on trade isn't that bad, since you can find 08s for about 21-22k obo, He has to just wait for someone who wants what he has, maybe he will get close to what he is asking, but when you mod a car that much, you can't look at it like you are going to get anywhere near that back, unless you find someone who wants just what you have,

You say you got a good deal with your car, and in your eyes i am sure you did, but i bet the dealer didn't have more then 10k into the z06 you got for your sti. Not that its a bad thing, as if you are happy with how the deal went then that is all that matters.
