mullinad is on a distinguished road
electron blue coupe?? or do you mean Eternal blue pearl... because the new civics (01+) do not come from the factory in that color... if it is the eternal, i suggest the carbon fiber. but if somehow you have a coustom paint job in Electron blue, I suggest the chrome...

I think something with CF would look sweet, as well as a CF hood man.

Just search the member's rides section and see how they look for yourself...I think a picture will help make your decision easier!

What do you mean "without our concent"? So before someone can do something to their ride they have to clear it with the rest of the group?

You know what since I have been on this site. It seems to me that anything somebody does to a vic somebody calles it rice. So what can you do to your ride that is not rice? So really we are saying that any change from stock is rice. There has to be a better way to define what is rice and what is not or maybe I am just missing the point all the way around. If so clear it up for me please someone.

rice is only defined by the person that says it. rice to me is altezza, big wings, and neon lights. everyone has a different opinion. that is just mine. some people may even say that my car is rice but i dont really care.

the respectable way is dumping your cash under the hood and making your car an actually decent racer, rather than the rice alternative (making your car look fast/putting mods on that do nothing or hurt performance)

me? ill stick with the sleeper look.

From around here I've come to figure that:

RICE : You just know it when you see it and you never see it on your own car.
What is hot today is rice tomorrow - change your mods early & often is the lesson.

for those who don't know what rice is, go to the FAQ's of this site. They tell you that rice is defined at RICER Go to this site if nothing else for a huge laugh.

Back to the subject at hand, I once saw an EBP with APC chrome euros and they looked great. If you wanna get altezzas, I say go for it.

I have never been a fan of altezza lights they are just dumb if I could I would just have all clear taillights that would rock, I won't buy a product that they made just to have people have something close to all clears because cops are being dicks about them and charge like $200 for them its a waiste of money in my mind. So I will stay stock just my $.02 just venting.

I mean Altezza's are cool because they are DOT approved and all but not worth the cash for just that
