RICE stands for Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement, which basically means buying parts that have no true function for a car to make it look as if it is fast with no engine or performance modifications to back it up. Most often, these cars are made by Honda and driven my people (called ricers) who do not actually know much about the innerworkings of their vehicle. These cars are made to look like cars used for racing and/or drifting such as a Toyota Supra or a Nissan 240SX.

antonym: Tuner
Tuner: "Silly ricer, useless wings are for penguins."
Ricer: "What?"
Tuner: "Dude, my lug nuts take more torque than your engine makes!"

Adding plastic airplane spoilers and Wal Mart quality exhaust to an import or sometimes domestic automobile. It's common knowledge in the tuning world that clear tail lights, rice can exhaust, and "Ballin" rims can augment a cars horsepower by a minimum of 400%.
"Hey look there goes that riced up civic...ooo sweet he's redlining it at the red light...ooo...almost got a burnout there..."
"Dude if he'd only get a bigger spoiler, he'd demolish everyone."
"I love ricers..."

The current definition of this term is anyone who thinks he/she's increasing the performance of his/her car but is actually uglifying it as well as reducing it performance.

Sometimes, this word is mistakenly used to refer to a tuner.
Example of a ricer: Owns a Honda Civic with a GTR badge on the gas tank cover, a big bodykit that actually increases drag and thus decreases performance, an exhaust that almost eliminates back-pressure and thus decreases performance, stickers everywhere, a really tall spoiler that gives the car more drag and thus reduces performance, huge chrome rims, thin tires which don't have a very long life, added weight (audio systems, the bodykit, the huge spoiler, etc.), bottles of "NAWWS", etc.

Any vehicle be it 4,6, or 8 cylinder with excessive amounts of useless objects on their car.
1. Spoiler on a FWD for drag puposes (ok if it is for road racing, contrary to what most believe, because it does help the back end of the car from loosing grip in hard cornering)
2. Stickers such as Powered by... or VTEC when it doesnt have it etc...(Again on a show vehicle stickers are ok because they must in order to keep sponsorship)
3.Mufflers = ricer, no horsepower added just noise
Exhaust = Racer, added horsepower
4. LEsson: Ricer's are not just honda's and acura's so dont trash them it makes people look ignorant when there are dozens of Imports that have been modified correctly and have power upwards of 500hp, and if you truly are a car person you know that thats good for any vehicle

An Asian car modified to look fast without going fast. Including but not limited to, exhaust tip (not exhaust or cat back), rims, bodykit, cardboard, tape, glue. Ricers do go into the the territory of hoopties. However hoopties are a much worse case. DOES NOT apply to American or European cars as RICE originated in Asia. Any American car that meets the descriptive definition of a Ricer is considered automatically a hooptie.
