Default does this integra look ricy?

ok well i can't afford it but im just wondering if this would be considered ricy b/c it has the body kit rims hood and spoiler. but it also has mods done under the hood. i personally think it looks cool.and if u think it looks ricy what if it were to have a turbo in it would it be less ricy. oh the color is nice too.http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/img_po...otoIndex=0well i can't afford it but i was planing on making mine look somewaht like taht i would loose the wing. same body kit maybe same hood and idk how much paint would be but mine is red so that would be fine. and i like the white rims with red so id prolly get them to. but first i plan on getting all the engine mods and shit like that.

It def looks ricey but its not nearly as bad as I usually see. No stickers is a plus. For something to be really ricey it is all based on cosmetics and not what is under the hood. It is not a super flashy body kit and those rims look alright on the car. I agree that it is a nice color and I hope that hood is actually carbon fiber. The exhaust isn't an ugly fart can which is also a plus.

It doesn't look to ricey to me, but if the engine mods were done right it would be a sweet car. IF YOU WANT IT BUY IT That's my motto.

Out of all the Integra Body kits (besides lip kit).... I like this one the best!The owner of this Teg really wants to sell his car!!! haha I can tell... I think the only way to sell it is if he looses the cheap $150 rims and the ugly spoiler and add some real $$$ rims that would go best on the car/kit and also put a Integra Type R Spoiler on!!!!btw... you do know that if you get this body kit, you're going to have to cut your bumper support a bit off to make the front fit?!?!?!(heres the thread that talks about it)http://www.team-integra.net/forum/di...cID=204095RIMs should be like this on the body Kithttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../DSC01100.jpgA red Integra with white rims??? (kind of ugly)http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...F0004.jpgheres some nice white rims!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...ted003.jpgHope this helps!

Nope, that one actually looks good.The only thing ricy is the Wing.It should be replaced with the regular stock Acura Integra Wing from a stock Integra or an Integra Type R.Any performance modifications would make it less ricy.A Ricer is a car with no performance modifications. Just looks. A car not meant to go past 160mph should not have a carbon fiber wing, or any huge wing. There is no purpose for it. It just adds weight.

Ricey to some people would be not ricey to others. Everyone has their own opinion about things like this. Obviously that guy likes the style of the body kits/spoilers which may be rice to everyone else. To each their own, but in my honest opinion it is pretty ricey. Aside from the body kit, wheels, spoiler, and hood, it's pretty decent lol. The color looks fresh and glossy, and there isnt any damage, unless you consider the spoiler and body kit damage. If the body kit was replaced with a 98+ integra front/rear bumper, and the spoiler was removed it would be pretty decent. Also needs a set of nicer wheels. As for having a turbo making it less ricey, i think it might actually make it more ricey. I say this because someone that likes body kits and what not, think that they can slap a turbo on it 'cuz everyone talks about them and they think they can do it and be faster then every car ever made, when this is not the case. Also alot of people think you can slap a turbo on and do nothing to the fuel or exhaust and not have to maintain it. Well it is more power, and needs to be maintained more so than a stock engine.

The teg in the pic don't look bad. Ricey isn't in looks alone. Ricey = all show, no go. If it is boosted and it can back up the looks, then it's not ricey. I wouldn't personally make my car look like it though. The rims are ok, but I would get just an OEM carbon fiber hood and a type-r wing and maybe a lip kit or something rather than the body kit.
