Any car which was designed to go slow (i.e. civic's, neon's, cavaliers', integra's, etc) which has been modified to even go slower. (i.e. wings, altezzas, ugly rims, stickers, body kits)
Ricer = the downfall of society.

a new mainstream concept that is over taking children today, usually a import car (ex. honda, acura) that will add parts or modifications that have no affect on performance, in fact most ricer aftermarket parts will hurt performance. (EX 3" exhaust on a 110hp civic)
a perfect example of a ricer can be found here: WWW.TEAMYAKU.NET
Is someone mowing there lawn at 11pm?
no its just the ricer down the street driving his civic.
oh. why does it sound like that?
because he belongs to a ricers club called team yaku and wants the whole world to know it.

UK Definition: A teenage boy who just passed his driving test. Now drives a Fiat Punto, Peugeuot 106 or Vauxhall Astra and shouts 'Ere bei's, look at my backbox!' that has more plastic on it than the contents of a "Toys 'R' us" and more lighting than wembley stadium.

Can generally be seen late at night in your local high street or multi-storey car park revving engines, making noises like an old person snoring through a megaphone, with girls sitting in the passenger seat who have applied their make-up with a brick-layers trowel or sneezed in their make-up box.
"Look at this ricer in a 1.2 Nova. Looks like he's just crashed into a halfords"

Anyone concerned more with (poor) aesthetics and obnoxious audibility than physics.
"Dude my new civic wing is dope, geee!"
"Yes, but what is the drag coefficient of that monstrosity? And exactly what do you think the effects of that much downforce will be on the rear-end of this front wheel drive vehicle. Did you even think 2 seconds in advance?"
"I got a 'Fast and da Furious' air-freshener."
"You got screwed over Ricer."

Any wackass car (civic, prelude, integra, accord, camry, sentra, etc) w/a rocket exaust tip yu can fist fuck and sounds like God's taking a piss after a 2 hr drive from nyc to atlantic city w/o a bathroom and w/ no engine mods what so racing pistons, no new crankshafts, no pulley gears, no cams etc. onli things modded are 'intake', paint, stickers, tints, rimz that go round and round, and rockets
HOMEY in a HONDA ODDESSY <minivan>: ayoo check out that ugly ass riced out radioactive green prelude next to us
ME: go race that shit on the highway

A dumbass who buys an import economy car like a Honda Civic, puts useless, garbage looking things on the body (stickers, bright, ugly green paint, neon lights, a 747 wing, etc) as well as the infamous (and extremely gay as fuck) fart can exhaust.

All this is to make the car appear faster, when in reality the owner probably hasn't even touched the engine, or if they have, the performance of the car has only increased slightly, despite what the dumbass ricer usually says. Ricers typically like to go around, revving their fart cans and trying to race Mustangs (who usually don't give them the time of day).

If you're a real man and are driving muscle, do the world proud and embarrass these ricer morons at the drags.
Ricer: Dude I put a 747 wing on the back of my car and a coffee can on the muffler, it's way faster than your gay mousestang

Mustang Driver: My car has 300 horsepower and enough torque to rip your car in half, stock, not to mention it doesn't sound like a dying animal.

Usually a young man with a car from Japan who uses cosmetic modifications rarther than using engine based mods. This is essentially the safer way to go for young boys on the cruise scene who cannot afford high performance mods for their engine due to insurance purposes.

Ricers usualy have:

Large Alloys
Lowering kits
Lighting kits
Audio enhancements

Although most people regard ricers as idiots, this is not the case. There are some who spoil it out there for us. Ricers can also be known as cruisers. Cruisers do not race and usually show off their cars in car parks with others that have the same interest.

Usually Hondas are used for the extensive amount of styling available. Engine mods can be put on later on as Honda's are one of the most tunable engines in the world. And to say that Honda's are no good, then tell that to the Halfords GT team that race using Integras and currently hold the championship.

Be owned.
Ricer/Cruiser: Someone who uses only cosmetic mods.

Predjudice: An act of Prejudice is, as the name implies, the process of "pre-judging" something. It implies coming to a judgment on a subject before learning where the preponderance of evidence actually lies, or forming a judgment without direct experience.

Just because you can't afford to do up your car, don't mock others because they can. In the end, it seems like jealousy.
