Default If I get a honda civic?

If I get a 98 honda civic and put mainly performance parts, and have way more performance parts than visual.. Would I still be called a ricer?and for the visual, I would get only a lip kit, new tires/rims, custom paint job, aftermarket tail lights/head lights, and small spoiler (not one of those huge wings)and what if it still had a loud, but not huge, exhaust?What I mean by only a lip kit and small lip spoiler, is going for a clean exterior look, I wont have decals or anything, and I guess I wont get an exhaust.The Rims will only be 15" or 16" for sure and they would be black "Tenzo R Passion"what I meant by custom paint job is just meaning different.It will just be a lip spoiler so it stays clean, I really dont like the look of flat back there

Yes, you would. People really don't know the difference. Some people will call you one if you drive a honda, some will call you one if you don't drive an american car, and some will call you one just cause your muffler is too loud.

some people might call you one, but if you do buy preformance parts you probably wont. the thing that will make people call you a ricer is your exhaust. Dont ever get a fart can cheap exhaust. go with a name brand company with a smooth flowing sound like Borla. And one thing is, if your doing all that be prepared to go into the $10,000 range.

Pretty much, because nowadays it seems like ricer is the term for any "modded" non American car. There's a big resurgence in American muscle, so imports are scorned, especially Civic's since that's what everyone buys.

if you put more performance parts into your civic than visual, (if your car is faster than it looks) than you wont be called a ricer. But if you overdue your exterior with dramatic kits and wings and lights and decals than you will be one. Make sure you keep your exterior looking clean and not overdone with enough power to back up the noise of your exhaust.
