A cheap low performance asian car which is mechanically stock standard but has been dressed up to look fast. The owner typically spends more money on making the car look fast than it was originally worth. Telltale rice characteristics include:
>shopping list - fake sponsor's stencils on the side panels
>giant "nismo" sticker - especially on non-nissan cars
>cannon exhaust - stupidly large exhaust kit that makes the engine sound like a fart
>oversized spoiler - especially on front-drive cars
>over the top body kit, especially with mismatched paint
>pictures of dragons anywhere on the car
>fake bonnet scoop
>anything held on with sticky tape
Honda civic, Mitsubishi lancer, and Nissan exa are all common examples of rice
An automobile that has been equipped with gawdy, unnesecary accessories, such as 3' high spoilers, loud and/or repulsive paint job and body work. Owners of such automobiles feel that these accessories make their car the best in the world, when in fact it is not.
That Prelude over there is nice, but this here Civic ain't nothin but a ric mobile
Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements. (R.I.C.E.)Parts put on cars to make them look fast, when they have no internal tuning, and are actually slow as hell. Parts usually consist of excessivley angular bodykits, large rear spoilers, neon, sponsor stickers, chrome rims, fake "coffee can" exhaust tips, and loud, annoying paint jobs and/or vynils. Sometimes parts are do-it-yourself installed and are basically duct taped to the car. Most commonly known for being done to Honda Civics, but can also be done to slow domestic vehicles, such as a Chevy Cavalier, etc.
"Yo dog, did you see the Civic that guy was rollin' in? it was so rice."
"This guy's got nothin' under the hood, it's just rice. Smoke him."
"What a riceboy, I bet he thinks his neon adds 50 bhp!"

Rice: Another word for cocaine. This term was made famous by the Houston rapper RiFF RAFF aka JODY HiGHROLLER.
Last night after we got home from the bar those 2 girls wanted to party so i brought the RiCE OUT.
All Show...No Go! Modifying a car that is a piece to begin with, and doing nothing but body work to it in the end. Most likely loud, and unreliable.
Like at that piece, how much money do you think he put in that rice?
To excessively modify and augment the physical appearance of sub compact economy vehicles in an attempt to make it them fast. Examples include unsightly body kits, oversised mufflers, (which are actually detremental to performance) neon lighting, thousands of decals, and of course, twenty inch rims which are far too heavy for these vehicles to handle.
Jimmy G thought he was "dopey-fresh" in his riced out Honda. That was, until my Bronco used it as a ramp.
