    Well, not really ricey. But it looks rather off than nice. Mukhang " marumi " ....





    However, some Civics ( Civic EG, ES & FD ) look nice with smoked Headlights and ambered CL's as long as it is done properly.





    And oh btw, don't bother getting Altezza-like tail lamps. Looks really ugly. Better keep your TL's stock or change it to a much more fresher one.

    Pwede rin yung red/white tail lights. Looks okay. Parang ganito

    TS there's nothing wrong with shaved bumpers, mukha pa nga clean looking pag wala rubber mouldings, pero others prefer to retain it..

    Meron naman smoked HL talaga pang EK, and hindi ba medyo mapula pag DIY amber HL lang?

    Not really, meron naman Bosny yamaha orange eh.

    Problem with DIY amber is people spray it OUTSIDE the lens which is bad cause it fades easily. However, experts do it inside the lens which is good cause not only it does not wash off when sprayed w/ high pressure water it also doesnt fade that easily as compared to the ones sprayed outside.

    Problem is, if you're not good at resealing, then you can't do the amber yourself. Cause if you don't seal the CL's properly, most likely moist will seep through the gaps and it will just be uglier.

    to recap, yung shaved bumper and smoked HL do not necessarily mean RICE for a black civic vti... although it is advisable to have a stock HL for cleaner look...

    on the other hand, I/H/E mods do not fall under that category also and, on the contrary, being highly recommended.

    well taken and many thanks to all, i just need to research on the appropriate I/H/E setup. (anyone who can share ideas will be highly appreciated)

    ..... regards

    mga boss re-up ko lang yung thread. I just want to ask kung ricey/baduy ba talaga yung car namay underchassis LEDs? Gusto ko kasi lagyan yung 2005 optra ko. Nakabody kit na siya, side skirts + rear bumper. Next term kasi all of my classes would end at night, 6pm is my earliest dismissal. So para kasing medyo astig tignan pag may underglow leds yung car or is it just my imagination? hahaha baka kasi next visit ko sa "baduy" thread nandun na auto ko. thanks in advance!

    Guys, how about car themes?

    They say that KDM cars can't go JDM because they are KDM?? But ok to go EUDM since some are released in euro.

    How come I see ford card with JDM setup?

    ** noob question...

    Kung anong trip mo, gawin mo. Kung sa tingin mo maganda, wag kang magpapadala sa sabi sabi ng ibang tao. Kotse mo naman yan eh.

    Para sa akin ang mods should improve the ride handling or performance, secondary na lang ang looks. Some people prefer to improve the looks. Kanya-kanyang trip.

    i respect serious mods

    performance mods like engine rebuild or transplant, boost, clutch, bigger brakes, suspension

    it shows the owner knows what high performance is all about

    aesthetic mods not so much

    go ahead, your car is already riced out anyway.
