Those wheels are stock, they were the painted pocket 16" wheels, but it was the underglow that I was pointing to.

Mine's clean, no rediculous underglow garbage, no rice, so I can't say I agree.

Although without tuning there is only so much that can be gained on the performance side from the usual intake/ header / exhaust etc...

I have underglow because its ridiculous. Makes me smile the three times I've turned it on because of the stupid looks people give me. I know it's a fail and like it for it

Underglow is a bit ricey, but can look good on the right car. It should not be your first mod as in the case of the man with the teal underglow, soooo gay!

Nevermind, I just did a google image search for underglow and nobody has it right, I guess the trend with underglow comes to 2 things.
1. Your car must be bone stock
2. The glow must be a color that goes with nothing on your car.

So all underglow is stupid







I bet nobody can find a car with underglow that actually looks good.

I'm not saying all mk3's, but most of them yes

Would y'all be willing to educate an older guy? What is "rice" besides something you don't like on a car? I thought it was a term for "like an asian car" but I see it used for basically anything somebody doesn't like at a particular moment. Is there a better definition?

There isn't one definition. My tags read USA RICE because like you said....like an Asian car. I have had them awhile and now the definition seems to have shifted more to the negative; now it more commonly refers to a half-assed attempt at a 2Fast2Furious car but is just that.....half-@ssed . Like a Daewoo with a huge pointless wing, ill fitting body kit and a Folgers can muffler that sounds like a beehive. Oh, and springs with like 4 coils cut out. I still see rice as a well put together and sorted out car that is "clean", functional, and has bite to back up the bark; like mine.
