    some people say the front of my car looks ricey, and some others say that my car looks badass, like a pissed of face or something. Its hard to tell in the pik, but my hood is carbon fiber[​IMG] if it makes a difference. I'll include a pik of my engine bay[​IMG] as well to aide in your decision. Opinions?

    got pics of the front end from any other angles?

    hard to see exactly what is going on with the hood... is it just a bulge or is there a vent there too??

    I don't particularly care for the hood/headlights but as E said; Its your car. Who gives a fuck? I mean my STOCK outward appearance Si has been called ricey based on looks alone. Haters gonna hate! lol

    head lights look a bit ricey but i think if you put some fogs on it would take away from the head lights a bit more and look fresh!

    to help out a lil more if its there just for show and has no other purpose its "rice"
    like if the hood has a hole to "vent" ok if halos gave off enough light to work as daytimes maybe if the purple was used cuz stock paint was chipping and thats all u had fine but if they were put on just cuz get out ur chop sticks RICE its whats for breakfast lunch and diner

    its all a matter of personal preference

    listening to all these JDM fanboys pisses me off.. just do what you like with your car, who gives a fuck what everyone else thinks. its your car, not theirs.
