I wonder what the difference is between us Vdubbers and the Ricers. Most of the Ricers are ugly when done up but the VWs' are usually done with taste and class that only enhances the vehicle's looks. How many garish aliminum, wings do you see on a VW. How many Vdubs are done up to like like a sharks' mouth...none! I submit one of my favourites......

Re: VW customizers vs Ricers (Ed52)

take the blinders off and look and listen for a second. there are a fair amount of unclassy dubs around. ever hear a 2.slow coming from a mile away?

Not many vw's have aluminum wings because most of the done up ones are Golf's (how many Civic hatchbacks have you seen with wings?)
A lot of ricers get bad reps because they drive like idiots. I can't say I haven't seen some VW drivers who drive like idiots.

Whats wrong with a 2.0? Not every dub has to have a VR or 1.8T to be cool.

nothing is wrong with a 2.0...as long as it has 16 valves

2.slows are allright...you can make them go nicely, maybe just a little underpowered for big mk4's

I'd say that half of the VWs that are modified are Jettas and I still don't see any wings.
Also, I've seen quite a few Civic hatches that have had a giant aluminium wing stuck to the roof. Hell, I've even seen a pink Sprint with a roof mounted wing.

Eye of the beholder, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. now what you have in your hand and call beuty is your own business.. just remember this you shake it more then one you are playing with it.

What about Dubbers who use "finger gap" as a suspension measurement. Now that's ***** mentality. "Finger Gap" is for testing how big a ho you just met

Re: VW customizers vs Ricers (thatTDIguy)

I think the term "r.i.c.e.r." os highly misunderstood and misused.
In my eyes a "r.i.c.e.r." is a person who makes their car look like something when it isn't... ie: Vtec stickers all over a stock honda, and so forth. But that's just me.

Edit: why is the word r.i.c.e.r. censored

Re: VW customizers vs Ricers (thatTDIguy)

when i first got my car lowered, i still have the tendency to use my fingers to measure how many finger gap i have
so i guess i am still a r.i.c.e.r
