LOL, bring those RICERS here, I will show them up, them and there fart cans, turbo charger, intercooler, 5-speed man. You know if Pontiac put those in our Bonny'*, the turbo, intercooler,ect. Our American cars would stomp all over 4 bangers. But as American cars are, THIER ALL ENGINE!

What do you guys consider to be ricers. I asked once and the explanation I got was that ricers were guys who had all the cosmetic parts in the world but nothing with their engine. If that is the case look at most skylines and some supras and the true racer the interior will be bone stock if not some parts removed. Now I can admit when I am beat and I would not want to take on a skyline or supra

Ratmfan2118,
If you ask what rice is, you will get several different answers depending on who you ask. Some consider all import cars to be rice. That opinion is okay. Others consider any car with body kits, stickers, interior customizing, and "fart cans" as rice. That opinion is okay too. There is no real consensus on what constitutes rice. Make up your own mind, and keep in mind that if you drive a car that has been modified, there is bound to be someone out there who thinks it is rice--don't let this get you down. To each his/her own. If it makes you happy, do it.

I personally don't care for the rice look, which I define as any car--domestic or foreign--that has body kits, ill-fitting after market bumpers, oversized wings, neon paint, and pointlessly oversized tail pipes. But that is just me. I have some friends who actually LIKE rice, and given the opportunity and money, would rice out their cars. Fine. But don't start acting like all the glue-on, stick-on parts are going to make your car perform any faster. It would be like taking an NA Bonneville SE and putting an SSEi badge on it, no improvement in performance.

My view:
Ricers are those who have small penises and compete for the admiration of others. They don't care about anyone else'* car but their own. They constantly strive to have their car and "taste" admired by anyone and everyone. And if you don't like their car you are consider either a "dumb hick", "rusty domestic driving ******", or someone who wishes you were driving his car. All ricers have a small ***** for this very reason, because they have no self-esteem for who they are and what they do. Ricers follow a huge trend, but think of themselves as original. There IS a such thing of domestic rice, it is not limited to imports. Ricers also tend, for the most part, to be white skinny teenagers that wear visors and have their hair bleeched in an attempt to attract women. Their personality is that of a total ******* who can care less about you (unless you like his car, of course). They also speak in a variant form of english known as "EBONICS". Example: "Ahiet! Ahiet is good yo! Its good, ahiet! Lets go ahiet! YO!" or "Shiat bro dat waz tight yo! Ahiet yo! Shizzit letz race again yo!"

THAT is how I define a "Ricer".

Mach...that was good...

I call it compensation. Ricers lack in "other" departments so they feel the need for compensation. And you are so right...they must and need to be the centres of attention...all the time

Yo yo, dat was tight!!
