Hi there. I enjoy working on my car, but at the same time, I don't want to make my S60 a rice car. I am looking for some feedback on what you think is a boderline between a "rice" and "stock" car. I want to keep my car as stock as possible, but at the same time, be able to do some kinds of modifications. So far, the only exterior mods that I have done are: black sports grille with Volvo emblem, red callipers (front ones have Volvo logo on them), and very small silver "swedespeed" decal on the bottom rear window. What do you think? I really don't like ricey cars... but for some reason, I can't seem to be able to figure out what is ricey or not. Heh.... thanks for you help.

Ricing a ride comes from within...those who are "rice," just can't help expressing it. Are you one of them? LOL<br>Here's a "nice" rice ride: <IMG SRC="http://www.ricedrides.com/gallery/lude2.JPG" BORDER="0">

Follow the styling/exhaust sound of a BMW M5 or a AMG Mercedes instead of the fast and the furious and you'll be OK.

Rice is when you take a base Civic and throw on 18" wheels, a multi tail plane rear wing, multiple 'Vtec' decals and then brag online how you can smoke every C6 Corvette ever built.

Love that picture. Is the car ready to take a dump? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

But you can slide on this one... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
