most ricers have multi-colored body kits, hi-profile aluminum wings, coffee cans for mufflers (or they just sound like a weed wacker LOL), they r usually really slow and low, rims are either chrome or mix matched; the interior is typically retarded, and the system makes every bolt and piece of metal vibrate on the car.. dont even get me started on the people who drive cars like that haha..

those r some things that i think make a car a rice box.. but i cant look at a stock prelude like that.. unless there's an extreme case..


**this post was not meant to hurt anyone's feelings or anything of that matter, this is simply my definition and opinion.** lol

Quote:
More contemporary use of the term rice burner, along with the prefix rice, has taken on an alternate pejorative meaning for an automobile that has been modified to give impression of high performance, but does not necessarily have any high-performance capabilities. This practice is in direct contrast to the "stealth" or "sleeper" style of automotive modification, where a vehicle may have major performance modifications, but the appearance remains similar to that of a stock model. In this manner, the appellation can apply to any vehicle regardless of country of origin. The most commonly modified cars are sport compacts, but the term can apply to any class of vehicle, including trucks.

In the UK, cars so modified are said to have been "chavved up", due to the popularity of such non-functional styling modifications in chav culture. Another term is "maxed/maxxed", or "laxed/laxxed", the former being derived from the name of the magazine Max Power which mainly features such non-functionally-modified cars, the latter from the derogatory nickname "Lax Power" applied to this magazine.

In some circles, or even entire regions of North America, the terms rice car, ricer, or rice burner are used exclusively to describe Asian-made vehicles, whether they have been modified or not. However, as more types of cars began being used as a platform for modification, including German and American-made cars, use of the term rice is no longer restricted to Asian-made vehicles.
