fixed.

but seriously, if the previous owner returned everything to stock after they beat the everloving crap out of it, does it still count as modded, or does it count as stock?

Personally, I would never buy from that kind of seller. Even if the car was returned to stock. Modders are typically fools who don't know anything about proper maintenance. And hoonings.

but if you're buying used from a dealership/lot, does it count as modded if it's been returned to stock?

A VIN check could solidify this claim, although I'll guarantee most people don't post their vehicle identification "number number" on the forums.

The dealer can't really undo global damage caused by modding. All they have to do is "bring it back to stock" so they can legally sell the car. It's up to the buyer to feel comfortable enough that latent failures won't result from whatever the previous mods were.
