    That word gets thrown around so loosely these days...how bout a clarification of "Rice"/ "Ricer".

    Rice:
    Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements. (R.I.C.E.)Parts put on cars to make them look fast, when they have no internal tuning, and are actually slow as hell. Parts usually consist of excessively angular bodykits, large rear spoilers, neon, sponsor stickers, chrome rims, fake "coffee can" exhaust tips, and loud, annoying paint jobs and/or vinyls. Sometimes parts are do-it-yourself installed and are basically duct taped to the car. Most commonly known for being done to Honda Civics, but can also be done to slow domestic vehicles, such as a Chevy Cavalier, etc.

    hmmmm......not seeing anything like that in this chop..

    I gotta use that next time I see someone calling stuff rice... :p

    BTW, I agree, I'm not seeing "rice" in this one... it looks awesome, not crappy/cheap... btw, anyone for an LS2 in there? (Would one even fit in there?)

    now see, we all have our own definition of what rice is...

    For example, I see rice as being unnecessary modifications done to a vehicle, including being dropped so low that the vehicle cannot function properly during normal use, the addition of Bright and flashy paint with useless decals as well as the addition of or modification of body panels (IE Front skirts, etc) and the blacking out of headlights/taillights. To me, this chop fits perfectly into my category or rice. I see no performance enhancements to this (sans the wider tires), to me it is all just unnecessary brightwork added to the vehicle.

    Mind you, this is not a bad chop at all, it has turned out quite well, however, I interpret this as being "Ricey"

    looks good, i like the paintjob you did, and the bumper looks good, but also obviously airbrushed on. it needs some reflections and more lighting effects, so it's better blended with the original bumper.

    It's nice, though something seems off about the paint. I think it needs reflections on it, as it looks a little flat
