Rice is a fad, nothing more, nothing less. Same thing as "JDM", it's just a fad, and it'll pass. I'm just sick of all the lil' whiteboys using this term when they're the ones who buy most of the "ricey" garbage as they're so fond of calling it. No offense to any caucasian board members who don't fall into the "whiteboy" category...

i'm not a big fan of clears/altezzas and i hate rice as much as the next guy, but your ride is clean. Clean is good. That alone won't make it rice. If you like em, keep em. If you don't, ditch them.

Don't mind some of the other guys. They are entitled to their opinions and you did post a pic which subjects your car to criticism. Take the good with the bad, and plan your next round of mods.

Here's a little hint, you need a drop and some serious engine work. Take care of the "GO" before the "show". Good luck :D

Yes, take care of the engine first. Small bolt ons would be a good starting point if you're on a tight budget. I'm not too familir with civics but these would be some good additions with decent gains, power and 1/4 mile wise. Home-made ram air and K&N filter, short throw shifter and aftermarket clutch, cams, cam gears, header, cat back, pulleys, and a very small shot of nitrous (something like 50). That's somethings i got off the top of my head. Like i said, i don't know too much about civics. You might want to check with some of the civic guys first.

Or if you've got some cash or want big power, you could do what i plan on doing and steer right towards forced induction or engine swap. I plan on going big first, and small later.

Good luck.

Give Danman1116 a damn break guys. People with their opinions. :rolleyes:

Danman1116, your car looks clean bro. The tail lights are nice man. Black civics are mean :)
Why don't you drop the car first as your first mod? Most people start with a drop or exhaust....and such.

I started with intake, and then exhaust (maxspeed dragger), dropped with H&R sport springs, and have 2 neon lights (one in front and one in back). I will be putting about 2 more neons on tomorrow or maybe just rewire the two with a switch that I have kept.

Good luck on the mod journey, Danman1116, and welcome! :)

i'd like to do a drop on it but i think that it'd look better if i got some rims first which I might be getting soon ;) then I wanna do some simple stuff like an intake and some underdrive pulleys or whatnot

Do what your heart desires!!!!

Personally i would get rims first, and then do the performance mods. It all depends on what you are going for...looks or performance?

I am going for looks since my accord is just too slow ;)

Why does everyone talk shit ?! I like his car, it looks clean. just cause you have Altezza's doesn't mean it's rice. UGH, I hate you people that talk shit. Everyone has to start somewhere, my first mod were some different honda rims and everyone made fun of me becuase I had "stock" rims that I actually paid for instead of getting chrome ones. No one is driving your car opr paying for it, but when they do then they can talk shit!
DanMan Honey, I like your car, and all the more power to you with it, I hope it comes along great, good luck on it. ;) :p :) :cool: :D ;) :p

Uh no, it looks like highschool trash. Why the hell would a honda car 'guy' buy a damn auto? I have a bone stock DX coupe thats a stick and even i point and laugh at sedans with altezzas. That car is a dead end peice of shit with an auto in it and those lame ass altezzas make me want to get rid of my car. I'm associated with you? For the 80$ you dropped (burned) you could have done something else with it. like a short air intake or use that money to put your car in the classifieds.
By the way, how much hp to the wheels are those altezzas adding? Whats up with the embarrasing sig quote? and gwen is sooooo flat.
