-A wing that could double as a high-dive.
-An over-the-top body kit. This will likely not match up with any of the vehicle's body lines and will be attatched hapazardly to the body as to cause severe misalignment with body panels. Primer is the color of choice, although the rare ricer will choose to paint their kit.
-Paintjobs that are either outrageously gaudy or that vary from body panel to body panel.
-Stickers representing high performance trim levels on base or mid-level models (i.e. GT-R, Cobra, SS, Si, Type-R, etc)
-Clearly aftermarket head- or taillights. Typically clear or "Altezza" lights are most popular, but other models can be seen as well.
-Neon lights affixed to the exterior of the car, most often of a contrasting color to whatever paint job the car may be sporting.
-Gauges that have no importance to the car at hand. i.e. A boost gauge in a non-boosted car. This can sometimes be represented by installation of a multi-pod pillar intended to give other drivers the impression that the car has something worthwhile done to it.
-While not a definining feature of "rice", there will often be present a large (6" dia or larger) tachometer mounted on the dashboard.
-A shift light installed in an automatic street car.
-Any other modifications done to a car that makes it stick out like a sore thumb and/or appear faster than it is in real life.
"Yeah, man what a ricer."
