    A short rant from me about all the ricer bashing . Ricers are not the only honda fans (or any brand for that matter ) that give us a bad rep with the general public .
    Our cars are sometime loud as hell , scare old ladies and kids , I hate useless crap on a car more then most , i have always been about performance first . My first honda an ef si , i bought it new when i was in high school (1989)drove the hell out of it till it died ( raced both on the street and on tracks ). bought a halfcut (1991) from japan and did a full swap .drove the hellout of it . i sold the car in 2000 the body was all stock still , execpt for the jdm front end and RH wheels .
    But i also respect a well thought, well exicuted show car . keep in mind we all have our own style thats why we mod our cars in the first place , It doesn't matter if you into speed or style , do it right and its not rice .:cool:

    The point is stop bashing the supid kids and saying they cause imports to have a bad name . Educate them so we are free to continue to mod to our hearts content . Rice and performance can be legislated right off the road . so lets ease off on the bashing and educate those still confused .

    really i could careless. dont like my lights? well go die. i like them. they stay. dont want to see them. well go crash into a poll then you dont have to. headlights arent even really special. blackened alittle with clear lens. but still no matter what. and i do agree with a clean show car. but. not these kids that roll through town and everything that advance or autozone has to offer for the cosmetics of your car is installed. Then you have some loud colors all over the place where their not required. like. bright green and blue...

    What's the point in giving your opinion on what is and isn't rice when it is just that--an opinion? Your idea of rice and my idea of rice are going to be different. This thread fails because there is no right or wrong answer...

    how can a thread fail if its opion based ? thats why i said rant . rice is generally consider a mod that offers no benitfit other than apperance .
    but items such as lights and add to the performance , so whats really bad about rice ?

    I prefer brown rice with black beans. Nutritionally speaking, that is the best combination of rice for you. :D

    the only shit that is needed for the body of any car you drive on the street is a nice clean paint job. No damn side skirts and humongous wings and wide body kits (roflcopter)

    Engine. Hey if you got some coo led's or something as far as engine accents ....you better have a beefy ass motor with 2x+ stock hp. I don't see the logic in spending money on non-performance items. ZOMG W8 you're saying "My spoiler makes me have more downforce" You car is front wheel drive bro, and I don't know where you're going to be going around multiple corners requiring the level of down force that thing supports. If you wanna make it around some corners but some z-rated tires. (just becareful if its cold your tires wont really work)
    hehe
