confused whats the silliest rice mod???

what do you reckon the silliest rice mod is?

is it the mugen sticker on the civic?

is it the mugen sticker on the vl commodore (true...i have seen it)

is it the tasteful and subtle rear wing?

for me, there is one rice mod that stands above all others in pointlessness and stupidity. that tailpipe. 4 inches of wasted metal with some strange farty noise trapped inside.

IMHO, nothing anounces true riceyness better, and with less style, that a huge exhaust.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Dual exhausts on Civics is my favourite... specially when one is immaculate and the other is covered in carbon... Hmmm LOL

I would have to say it is when they change the badges on the side of the car to represent V8, or 5.0 when it is a 3.8 litre VN

Much better to put 250 badges onto a 351 powered XB Fairmont,
that sort of deception is much more fun!

I'm in the eastern suburbs of Sydney near a university whose student demographic enables it to be ricer heaven. I've seen em all, but my favourite is hundreds of little stuffed toys on the dash and rear shelf. So cute.

"Farty noises trapped in the exhaust"- what an absolute ripper and would have to be the most apt description of an attempt to unnessarily grab attention.

I think the best ones are the typical, and hallmarks of this type of lunatic that you can spot at 50 paces.

- stupid stickers
- drain pipe "farty' exhaust
- 10,002 figurines stuck to the dash board
- a rear vision mirrow dangly ornament
- flurescent bits on wiper blades, door handles and any other place to make it a fashion victim designed by pre-schoolers
- the neon light thingy's (this disease is contageos and has affected most of the look I can do up my car brands)
- lowered beyond practicallity
- significant rim size beyond practicality

mmm that would type cast them I think?

Huge wings that would look out of place on a Super Modified Sprint Car
Plastic/fibreglass body kits
4" drainpipe exhausts on stock or near stock 4cyl - fair enough if you have something like a turbo rotary that needs it but most cars dont
Doof doof stereos playing crap music that can be heard two km before car is in sight
Carbon fibre interior bits
Blow-off valves (especially the fake ones on non-turbo cars)
Large stickers or signwriting on the car like "Type R" and "Honda" or "XYZ Racing"

A couple of examples of bad taste (I don't know if ithey qualify as rice) I have seen was a Commodore with an "X2" badge on the boot off a HR Holden and a Pajero with neons in the windscreen washer nozzle.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
