Yup.

I wonder why putting on m-tech or m3 bumper on non-mtech or non-m car is still not considered ricing.

some people need to freshen up on their rice criteria since I'm sure half of the people that post here have ebay mods all over their cars but then again, I'm sure they're the tasteful ones so it's ok.

it's the blacked out tails, not the bumper protector. g35/37 attracts a certain pychographic of males.

everyone and their mother has one of those around here. Those tails aren't so terrible that they aren't see-through so I'm sure they're still functional and I don't think they look that bad, just a bit on the dark side but not too terrible...but then again I've seen plastidipped taillights...

Any non-oem dark tinted tail light is pretty rice. Serves no functionality but yet details the whole purpose of tail lights to some degree. It's a pretty retarded mod IMHO. Who was the first dumbo who thought. It's like getting smaller windshield wipers to make your car look more "clean" and then you're SOL during a storm. Dum dum durum. Dusturbiaaa

How can putting an m-tech bumper on, by any means be ricing??

M-tech bumpers were an oem option for all e46 cars.

I guess now I can see but back when I first bought my first car I was barely out of high school and was barely able to afford a small ford zx2. long story short, I kept adding a lot of stuff to it over the years I owned it and well I loved the way it looked. Ill let you guys decide if it was RICE or what.

When I bought it.
