Thumbs down Wilshire Blvd.

Wilshire Blvd and West Wood is a pain in the ass to drive on. For a Street with Billions of dollars worth of buildings on each side, i would expect the People who run the City of Los Angeles to do something about it. It has pot holes, bumps, Uneven cement, and if fucks up the M3 so bad even when i am in comfort mode.

I made a complaint today and the lady who picked up started laughing and told me that the city is broke and that it is not happening.

You live in BH and you're just now noticing how messed up Wilshire Blvd is?

Sunset and Santa Monica aren't much better, either. Sunset between La Brea and Highland is insanely bad, it's washboarded out and will shake the shit out of your car.

Roads in West LA are terrible.

I drive that shit every day, I have different routes memorized not because they're faster but because they avoid some of the worst potholes and defects in the pavement.

Roads around K-town are awful, too. You just can't drive a car with low profile tires around this area...

LA is one big ****hole, from my experience. Just nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

I've been in LA, staying in Santa Monica, for about a week now and driving this area frequently. The road is beautiful compared to what we drive on in Hawaii.

A guy who lives near SF is hating on LA for being a shithole when SF is the home of AIDS. Not to mention Oakland.

lol, yeah I live right off of Wilshire and I think it's a nice road too. I guess growing up in New Mexico has warped my view.

Go to Germany and drive on the autobahn (as long as it is not under construction!) and whatever you drive on after that will never be good enough. Once you've tasted the forbidden fruit...

The roads out here in DC are pretty bad...I'm not looking forward to driving on them in my M.
