i think the leds in the grill are fine thats individual style. im not big on the tinted headlights and stuff but that is not rice. Rice is big huge spoilers, overly huge body kits, fart can mufflers, cheapo hood scoops that have no functionality.... those are rice. not your car broski

You are not rice in my opinion though, I am actually glad that you want others' opinions - keep it up do what you like and that is all that matters.

What I would do is a drop, use the red to tint your tails, remove the tint from the headlights, paint the insides black, then just concentrate on performance mods.

i already have the frpp kit... i dont want to really sacrifice ride quality but i might do the red tails still not sure on that how hard is it to bust the headlights apart and paint em inside?

The vinyl was sorta rice... but i took a bold step and loved it. had it on for about a year. its off now

Maybe this is what they are considering rice? Could be the way you drive too. If you drive all "TOKYO DRIFTZ STYLEZ YO!" with these led's on, I could see their point. I'd go for the SES style headlights/taillights. OEM+ FTW
