This car was never abused and only babied.
All those mods, and it wasn't abused? Yeah right... Yeah, you have headers, intake, etc, all the ricer mods, and it wasn't abused.... sure.
You would be surprised!! My friend Mas had a 2005 350Z and added nismo headers suspension etc. and he drove it like an old lady. He wanted to keep everything mint.

It'* only a matter of time before some of them start to wise up.
I thought of this when I had the supercharger put in my F150 but I plan on keeping that truck for at least the next 10 years.

At least the spoiler isn't 4 feet tall. For a rice car it isn't done to look too terrible.

To add my .02 cents to the discussion of what rice is, here'* my definition:
To take a slow, cheap vehicle (usually late model, and foreign), and add racing styled parts that have no function (the total cost of these parts MUST exceed the cost of the vehicle itself). Said car must also have an exhaust tip greater or equal to a coffee can. Car must also be driven at full speed at all times, and drifting must be attempted at least once a week. Also, when said car is to be put up for sale, to boast about how much money was dumped into the car, and ask for an exorbitant amount that well exceeds any reasonable blue book value.

IMO Ricing is when you over do it. when it dominates the car.

Modding is when you accent the car. The car is still the focal point.

Think of it this way. When a woman wears makup, it'* hardly noticable, and she looks great. Now a clown also wears makup, but looks stupid.

keep in mind that 99% of those mods are appearance only mods, and all the others are performance AND appearance, its very possible that it was just built for show... Its not like there is a T67 pushing 30lbs of boot on it
