Default Ricer Confessions.

Okay, we all know what a ricer is, and we all know what is generally considered as "ricey". Though I wanna know, is there anything that you wouldnt mind doing to your car that might be considered "ricey"? Also, what "ricey" thing do you hate absolutely MOST?

What I wouldnt mind doing to my future car that is a bit ricey?



I wouldnt mind having my front license plate off to the side like this Lancer right here, even if the car didnt come with it stock and my car isnt an Lancer. Some would argue that this is too wannabe "JDM BROOOO". Oh, and I also would paint my rims white or black if the car was deserving of it. No funky ass colours like hot pink or fuschia purple.

What ricey thing I hate most? BIG MOTHER ASS MUFFLERS. PLEASE, WHOEVER STICKS A 4" MUFFLER ON A COROLLA NEEDS TO DIE. SIMPLE AS THAT.

I'd put a 5" tach with a shift light on my truck (Sadly though I can't find a 8k one instead of a 10k rpm)

I'd also put a bunch of stickers in my rear window, (because I think they look cool )

My ricer rage: Huge spoilers. 'nuff said.

A classic ricer is huge spoiler and a "coffee can" muffler.

I miss awesome spoilers that were functional too, like the schweet 1980s Ford bi-plane spoilers:

Yeah, stock isnt rice, I just wanted to see if you hated ALL big spoilers, including stock xD

AND YES. NEON STREETGLOW. THEY NEED TO DIE TOO I FEEL YOUR HATRED (which, usually, would be a nice show of companionship of mutual agreement, but since it's of hatred of streetglow, it's sorta askewed. Oh well...)

Also, a BOV on a turbo is rice? I dont think so. I think that's just proper. A BOV on a supercharged or N/A? Alright, now we're approaching rice.
