I personally just like the stock looking halos because I beleive our lights do kick ass....you just need to make them appeal better then stock.
    That's fine IF we were just talking about "ANGEL EYES", but we're not. THe topic is these headlights with 6 lights on each headlight lighting up, NOT including the actual low beam. Everyone knows angel eyes originated in BMW's, but when someone says "ricer-ISH", it means it looks as if it belongs on an import, seeing as how the majority of the cars u see that have a bunch of led's and lights are imports.

    funny ricer def.

    Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt)

    A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

    - Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
    - Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
    - Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
    - Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
    - Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
    - Altezza lights/Halos/Clear tail lights and corner signals
    - A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
    - Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Cavaliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the mods done to them on a case by case basis.


    The "ricer" attempts to make their car "performance" by adding the modifications listed above. These ricers are not confined to any one ethnic group or color, however different ethnic groups are known for certain styles.
    Honda Civics with big spoilers and 4" exhaust tips are considered to be ricers.

    I think they look good. I've never heard of the headlights leaking, but the corners will

    what does beneficial mean? spoilers on a civic are appearance mods which dont affect any type of performance, so are headlights on a camaro.

    I'm with Joshie. I don't like any of that halo headlight crap. But I'm old and my opinion is much different. It's your car though and you shouldn't be worried what other people think.

    I'd keep the stockers around though just in case you ever decide to sell the car

    I think these are the ones I'm going with.



    Pic respectfully stolen from another forum.

    I like the way they look, and they are the ccfl halos, that are brighter and last longer. I'm just experimenting with a different look. I'm keeping my stockers and going to attempt the whistler mod on them,(they can't look any worse anyway ) so I'll have two sets of sexy headlights.

    Oh there will be pics. I've got a 12 MP Kodak, and the wife has a 12 MP Nikon D60. So there will be some hi-res pics for sure. Just waiting on the IRS to cough up my tax refund

    By non beneficial I mean it takes away from the car. My shiney little bird decals add a nice touch. A big spoiler creating drag ... well that speaks for itself. Halos, thumbs up for them

    but thats opinion, cuz personally i dont think "shinny little bird decals" look good, so then i think there non-beneficial. all appearance mods are opinion, but no one thinks adding performance mods are stupid.
