Rice Rides by nature are ugly. Who likes an unpainted bodykit anyways??Shawnsilverb14 said:Everyone has their own priorities, maybe some people don't care about having a fast car, they just want a good looking ride. Just cause a ride has looks dosen't mean that it was made to be fast.

Here is the fine line between 'rice' and 'not rice'. You can spend as much money as you want on looks and not on power, it doesn't matter, as long as it isn't silly or detracting from the car. So if you only have small cash, and cosmetic upgrades usually cost small cash compared to performance upgrades, you can go the cosmetic route, but everything has limits.
For example, stickers. Stickers are not 'cool' unless they are NASCAR style on the fender and actually represent what the car has connected to it. If they are just 'for show' thats 'ricey'. Personally I don't like any stickers anywhere on any car. But that's just my opinion. Yes that even applies to full fledged race cars. But of course sponsors pay for those stickers, so if people paid me to have a sticker, I might think about it.
Take this analogy and apply it to other things (pie dishes behind rims to 'look' like calipers instead of drums, etc. Vents are ok too. One in the fender or one in the hood is fine. But a zillion in the bumper and 5 on the hood and 3 on each fender, not too subtle.)
Alot of people define rice by 'in your face' vs. suble, and that isn't true. Alot of people have cars that are very 'in your face' but are not ricey. However, this is all my opinion, and one mans car is another mans rice.
No, that's bravery. Hold on tight. Seriously, (as an answer to that question can be) if the nozzles are used to vent the actual jet exhaust then it isn't rice. Now if the guy only needs a 2 foot diameter nozzle and he has a three foot nozzle, then it's rice.If a guy has a car with jet nozzle exhausts, and then actually has a jet engine, is that 'rice'.
