Rice (lets hope that this will be the last thread on the topic)

Rice itself is an attitude. Its not a car. It boggles me when people say that Altezzas are rice. A part cannot be rice. It all depends on the persons taste. As far as cars that are all show and no go, the people that made them just made them for personal expression. Just because you dont like something, doesnt make it rice. Some things are distasteful in peoples eyes, but the people that put those things on their cars do it for a reason; because they like it.

Well, if a person thinks that said Altezzas make their car faster, then perhaps that would be rice...

What makes you think that you have the right to ignore the other thread, and post YOUR OPINION here, then have the audacity to suggest that this should be the last thread on the topic?!?

It's an ongoing argument that you do not have the wit, intelligence or diplomacy to solve single handedly.

Why not just post it in the other rice thread?

But basically that's true...But I'll call many things rice, and that's just my personal opinion...how about we set it at this:

Rice depends on personal opinion, it can be anything, from a paint job, to a massive wing, and body kit covered in bondo...

That being the attitude, not the part itself.

well when I say something's rice, I'm just stereotyping. If most of them rice, I generally just go ahead call all of them rice.

to me rice isn't overly much about how a car looks (although looking like liberache's handbag doesn't help the car's case any), it's more of the whole "omg i have a fart-can" thing. thats rice. fart-cans = stupid annoying fugly things that high schoolers use to impress air-headed girls. same goes with v-tec stickers on volvos, "type-R" stickers on cavaliers, and basically anything to do with body kits.

to quote a guy i used to work with "I don't think i'll get it [the suspension] lowered, i mean the bodykit lowers it like 3" already."

I agree. I'll close this one as this argument's clearly ongoing elsewhere at CF!
