It's rice. IMO, all visual changes that don't improve performance are rice.

Plus, tinting lights is beyond stupid. Asking to get hit.
so personalizing your car to your tastes is rice? black roof? people that buy wheels just for looks? thats....strange logic.

i agree its not smart per say. Especially if you go below what is legal.

Not logic at all. It's subjective opinion.

However, personalizing you car is one thing.

Tinting lights that are there for your and everyone's else's safety is beyond rice. It's the stupidest thing I can think of doing with your car, aside from driving it into a concrete wall at 90MPH.

It's a massive "I'm an idiot" sign to everyone around you.

So you sayin' your plush & luxurious Luxe floor & trunk mats from Lloyds are rice? :crackup:
Floor mats aren't a visual change. By "visual change" I mean mods done to impress others with the look of your vehicle.

sure. its stupid, i wouldnt call it rice though. I havent tinted my lights, but i dont see an issue with it as long as the tint is light enough to not be an issue.

He purely mentioned reflectors, which imo, if it doesn't decrease their ability to reflect, is doing no harm

the people with dark ass tint on their lights that you can barely even see at night are morons. lol

its probably more "rice" to call them a mod.
Exactly. Ricer is typically associated with asian cars that have aesthetic mods and no actual performance mods. On a 450+ HP car, you can't really call it rice since the car already hauls ass. So yeah, it's not rice.

I personally love that our factory brake lights are nearly weapons. Also totally agree tinting them is a little much. I tend to go the route of entire assembly with black insides instead of chrome while keeping actual lighting nice and bright.

agree. i wouldnt tint my headlights, only the assembly if i did it. Tailights...eh..maybe, but not dark.

reflectors are pretty fair game imo

If ricers do it, it's rice. Ricers tint their lights & reflectors. Big time.

Tint your reflectors/lights, it decreases their ability to reflect/light. That's non-negotiable. There is no one without the other.

Anyone can do anything they want with the car they bought. Trying to stand apart a little from a crapton of mustangs out there isn't really rice. Unless you slap some fake glue down hood scoops or a ghastly spoiler. Even then, your car your choice.

Safety =/= Rice

Trying to "stand apart" is for those that care what others think.

then we are all ricers because we buy exhausts, wheels, floor mats, etc etc. (thats at the blanket statement of "if ricers do it"). some exhaust mods DO increase performance, but an axleback or catback arent doing much other than increasing volume.

yeah i cant say ive ever tinted my lights or reflectors, so i dont know if they have light enough versions to still allow a certain level through; thats more what i meant.

making it useless for its intended purpose is pretty dumb. i agree with you on that. moderation is key. I think moderation is generally what dictates the line between "rice or nice"

And that automatically translates to rice? Then why did you get a Mustang GT and not a ford pinto?

I mean this can go on and on
