    Those cars look nice, but i can tell most are for show, not go. good way to make a little extra cash racing one of them. take your rusted, stock wheel and dented civic hb and challenge one of them. they cant refuse because there car is nicer than yours. then just embarrasse them in front of everyone-- they be like "aw man u got beat by a hoopdy" 5k bet, easy money.

    i saw that ad on TV. i liked it :D its definitely ricer friendly. in fact, the APC ford focus showcar is in there.

    i'd like to know how some of you can tell that a car is slow just cause its riced out? i go to car shows and have seen some ghey looking cars with very fast mods (turbos, superchargers).

    here's a little proof:

    (supercharged engine in a very riced-out 2000+ civic)

    The only thing i like about the comercial is that they dont just have 63 2002 riced out civics. At least they decided to use past gen. civics.

    Plus the first riced car you see is a sol with a huge wing. That is just a waste of a good sol

    i just had to get this off, when you say somethin is rice it makes me think like its pure asian/jdm. I mean if you go over to other countries and say those cars are rice, theyll look at you like your dumb.

    really? When I think of rice the following list comes to mind:

    altezzas
    big ass wings
    altezzas
    neon underglow
    altezzas
    big huge body kits
    altezzas
    LED muffler tips
    did I mention Altezzas?
    ALL SHOW NO GO!

    I know there are a lot more out there but it varies from person to person. As far as JDM goes I don't really have a problem with that. But like I said it varies from person to person

    basicly rice came from the insult domestics gave to japanesse car owners like rice burners, rice rockets ect. Those who are not into the whole Fags N curious thing say rice is stuff that is not funtional like neons, bodykits, spoilers, anything that hurts performance (big ass wheels), altezzas so on and so forth. Things that are JDM according to us is by far NOT rice (unless it is JDM style altezzas stuff like that) However not all body kits and spoilers are RICE. Things like Mugen (they make spoilers and bodykits and tons of performance stuff) because from a good brand these things are real areodynamic helpers.

    "RICE" is kinda like telling the difference between soft porn and hard core porn, you can't really explain it but you know it when you see it

    lol

    I have to say I like the commercial just because of what Honda is trying to do. Its smart marketing. Some of the cars are gross, but they arent trying to appeal to hardcore enthusiasts. Riceboy or not, if they sell a car they're happy and thats pretty damn smart. More money for them, better products for us, I cant get mad at that. :worthy:
