With closer inspection, I see purely functional mods. TRD CF side fins



and BFW for aero. Lightweight 17" Volk CE28N (polished silver lip gives it away whereas Rota DPT has no polished lip) worth almost $4k. Around $5,500 on 3 choice items... ricers will do other worse things first with that kind of money. It was a trick question because I see function>form.

I have noticed the trd fins and volk wheels. It is just the wing really kills the look.

If you take the car to the track, and therefore the wing has functional use, then I wouldn't call it rice. Although that wing does look ricey as hell (way too over-the-top) and I'm sure there are other wings that provide sufficient and/or better performance without being quite as tacky.

If the driver of that car bought the wing and doesn't plan on tracking the car or achieving speeds where the wing would even do anything... then the driver is a ricer, pure and simple. Most aesthetic mods that try to turn the car into something you'd see in Fast and the Furious when the driver just wants attention from other drivers on the road... yea, ricer.

Yeah... but if we take away the wing we're left with CF fins with no other aero and smaller 17" wheels w/ no drop. Based on cost, I'm making a strong assumption that none of those 3 items were for looks.

The only mods I see for looks that serve no function are the short antenna, Toyota badge, and JDM exhaust tips.

Very true. Back in the late sixties and early seventies all the muscle car guys and hot rodders called Hondas, Toyotas and Datsuns "rice burners". I believe that was the origin of the ricer tag. Yes, I was there and old enough to drive then.

The thing about wings is that the bigger they are, the more downforce they make. That wing looks like it has a pretty decent airfoil cross section, along with good sized endplates to minimize vortex formation, increase downforce, and decrease drag, so there's not a lot to be gained by simply making that wing more efficient. Going to a smaller/less obnoxious wing probably couldn't be done without decreasing downforce (aside from maybe using a fairly complex multi-element airfoil, but even that might only increase the lift coefficient by 50% or so at most, and it would look just as obnoxious visually). In other words, if the car is tracked, and that wing was put on to improve downforce, a significantly smaller one would not be a viable substitution for similar performance. Yes, it looks obnoxious, but if the car is tracked, I think it's a justifiable performance upgrade.

Actually, come to think of it, I'm surprised that multi-element airfoils aren't more common among the larger wings available for cars. They can be significantly more effective than a single element airfoil of the same size. Here's what I'm talking about, for anyone not too familiar with aerodynamics:

Thats just an opinion, Im totally distracted by the big wing even if its CF, to me its rice, its too much, it might be better with a full aero kit.

Regarding the wheels, I say Volks everyday of the week.

That wing? RICE... Doesnt even have an aero-kit, diffuser, or coilovers (challenge that). It's also way to large for the BRZ, as it won't be effective at that size. Maybe it will help in the winter by adding uneccesary weight to the back!
