A popular among the automotive crowd, Rice describes cars that have been modified visually; be it a very agressive and over-done body kit, rear spoiler (very popular "rice"), 'Euro'-style or 'Altezza' (clear lens and silver plastic, red lenses - second most popular) tail lights, or a bunch of useless car modifications, including but not limited to: Fake nitrous bottles, Type R stickers, 19" rims, fake hood/body/roof scoops, ground-effects lighting (glow under car), and the infamous fart-can muffler (usually 3 1/2" or more in diamater, identifyable by its annoyingly loud drone, reminiscent of a screwed-up subwoofer or a fart in a can, hence the term fartcan).
Look at those dumb rice taillights on that Civic! Ugly, man!
Uhh... the body kit on that Tiburon SCREAMS rice.
Man that Eclipse is rice, from its Altezzas to that stupid fartcan.
Damn, if you haven't figured out what rice is yet, this is a perfect example. Chickenwire grille on the bodykit that was probably worth more than the car itself. Spoiler, painted dash?

ii) A car, usually a late model of japanese origin, that has had numerous features added to it that may enhance its looks, but do nothing for its performance.
Examples include "VTEC" and "Mugen" stickers, large spoilers, chrome wheels ( see also bling bling ), large diameter exhaust pipes,
clear brake light lenses and lowered springs.
