IMO, the GXP would be less ricier, if at all, than a comparable 2000+ SSEi.

Why?

No Plastic Cladding.

Cleaner styling - no "frills".

i think "rice" is more the car owners state of mind than the car itself....i mean if i guy is modding his Civic with body kit and wing and all that and just wants it to look cool then power to him....but if he thinks his Civic is "hella fast" after putting that stuff on there, then hed be a ricer in my opinion....

Good point. Same goes for Bonneville owners. Same goes for owners of any car.

A good example of factory rice would be a Toyota Celica. What was the motto for that car? "It just looks fast."?

*sigh* the deviations that happened when the Celica went FWD after '86... :(

I always thought the domestic version of a rice was called a flea?

The GXP is definately not ricey!
Anyone who thinks so should have their head examined. lol

I think the car has a very modern muscle look to it (similar to the new GTO).

Default GXP=Rice?

When someone says a car is riced out, they are usually basing this observation on the appearance or sound of a vehicle.
Typically, if someone adds stickers to their car, regardless of its actual performance capabilities, it can be called riced out, but using sarcasm we can say these cars are riced out when in fact the whole world knows that this is truely not the case.

Any vehicle with a damaged muffler can sound ricey. The hardcore riceboys have a fart-sounding exhaust, and typically when any "normal" 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder loses its muffler, it sounds like a fart. The person probably does not enjoy this sound but just has not had time to visit the exhaust shop. We call these vehicles riced out, again utilizing sarcasm. We say this because the riceboy does not realize it, but he looks like these normal people with loud fart-sounding exhaust on an economy car. Except in riceboy'* mind, this farting noise is the sound of performance.

Often times because rice boys think that fog lights add horsepower when applied in excess numbers to their vehicles, we like to call even factory fog lights "rice lights."

Exterior Vehicle Characteristics:
- 3. Big wings/spoilers
- 4. Outrageous body kits
- 5. Large wheels, rubber band sized tires
- 6. Stickers
- 7. Single blade windshield wiper
- 8. Clear taillight lenses
- 9. Large exhaust tip
- 10. Excess fog lights


"Performance" mods:
- 11. Exhaust systems
- 12. Cold air intake
- 13. Lowered suspension



Based on the definitions above niether the SSEI or GXP is rice/ricey or riced out.
