Or is it "just for looks" (i.e as RICE as it ever gets)?
So neewb, you trying to be funny or just stupid?

No, being a fresh "neewb" in the BMW community I obviously just didn't have enough time yet to get used to the fact that about 95% of it are just teens with rice for brains. No worries, I'll get used to it to the point of being able to ignore rice kiddies like you as ambient noise, just give me time... It is just something any intelligent person has to go through when they "join the club".
