Unhappy Riced up E39 in Tortola

Just got back from a nice little cruise of the Caribbean. One of the stops was Tortola, where my GF and I usually rent a car and go to an unknown beach....

We are chugging along and my GF yells out "STOP!!!!" I thought we ran something over and then she yells out "RICER BMW!!!" (she is well trained).....we had to circle back, I wished I could have pulled over to take better photos but the front was worse than the back.....

Here is the car and here is the unknown beach.... Definitely a candidate for Jimmy's.....

Tortola was great. We drove around the island for a bit..... I am comfortable driving on the wrong (left) side of the road in a left-hand drive car (it threw me for a loop driving a right-hand side car in Antigua on the left side of the road though).

Not too many hotels or restaurants, not very developed like St. Thomas..... Quiet laid back. Really good for sailors

Here is a pic of me on the water, sporting an ///M hat...... I am not topless but I did manage to steal my GF's floatie.

Epacy - I am to please . The only BMW, I saw on the island was pimped and riced out.

Looks nice out there. Two things:

1) I actually like driving on the left side of the road for some reason...can't really put my finger on it.

2) That's not rice. It's just really bad taste.

Well to me the definition of rice is wasting money on parts that are all show and no go, and on top of that going for very cheap parts including but not limited to scrap metal exhaust, plastic chrome spinner hub caps (the kind I've seen at Autozone for about $20 for a set haha) decals and stickers and badges that don't belong on a car.

Another thing that qualifies a car as rice to me is if it has a body kit or aero parts that are installed very poorly, don't fit properly or are painted the wrong color or just primered, that is just so ugly I can't even begin to comprehend it.

That being said, that BMW is pretty ugly but not really rice.
