Maybe my understanding of rice is wrong, but it is my understanding that ricing is an aesthetic mod that is meant to look or sound like performance (with little to no actual performance gain), and is usually over the top for the car that it is being added to.

Think of it this way, you didn't buy the Camaro strictly for the power, did you? Nothing wrong with wanting your performance parts to look good as long as your not hindering the performance of the part you are adding.
Was going to buy a Mustang, was going to buy a Mustang, and then I saw the 2010 Camaro... Camaro made it home July 18th, 2009[Camaro# ...24182].
