I have yellow fogs on my WRX. I got them because I like the look, not for any function reason. Hell, I usually don't even have them on because those lights are a pain in the ass to replace when they burn out. Ricer mod? sure. Do I care? nope. I like the way it looks.
Yellow fogs are actually not Rice at all. Yellow cuts through fog vs white which reflects off of fog. But I agree, we all have "ricer" mods. Hella horns for instance since most people have them...the hell we need 2 annoying horns for? looks only. lol

I'd think far more people have Armor Rally flappers than Hella Horns......

Didn't know mud flaps could rustle so many jimmies around here. **** clear bras. Give me flaps all day long. My flaps on my 19 sti match my overly safety yellow calipers. I even color match my ricer ****.

Yellow lights have been proven to be more effective in certain weather conditions due to their wavelength. Having auxiliary lights on your vehicle is good back up in case you need to limp home with a headlight out etc.

A Type RA outside of a garage? dirty and in the snow? modified with mudflaps, a rear fog/brake light, window tint, winter wheels, and exhaust?

Some people actually buy cars to drive, not wait for resale value. I applaud you sir.

I second this notion. If I could get my hands on an S209, which I won't, I'd drive the piss out of it just because.

Iíve driven every car Iíve owned, short of the RA, and that was largely due to discovering an S model was in the works. Iím debating making an effort to secure an S209 and hopefully be able to enjoy it as weekend car.

... not that your comment was directed at me, but if it was, thatís all right.

I'm sure there are practical reasons, but like I said, I don't even turn mine on much, so it is pure rice. lol.

... better check the welds on the intake and find a mad scientist to tear apart the engine block to replace the piston rings that have already been fried.

Repairs costs about $5k out of pocket, because SOA said my tune voided the warranty (I'm fighting this). Not sure if I'm selling it yet. I'll announce it here if so. $25k and it would hypothetically be yours. Hypothetically.
