In between La Brea and Highland (especially crossing over La Brea on Sunset heading east-bound) is some of the worst pavement I've ever seen. I avoid that area at all costs.

SF has bad roads, but it isn't as bad as West LA. I am glad I take my Civic when I go down there.

What I hate about SF is being stuck on one of those insane hills waiting for a traffic light. Even with hill assist that shit is clutch rape.

I feel your pain bro, I'm living on Wilshire at the moment and have to deal with this shit on the daily... just hit up the middle lanes and stay away from the sides... and just sit patiently in the Wilshire backup... sometimes I wish my M3 could fly

Wilshire blows bigtime...At least they repaved PCH, Sunset and some of the other roads around the area...The 405 is a big mess these days too. The fast lane South from Santa Monica is really uneven due to the trucks and the work in the middle for the new lanes...I find myself with the M button engaged and needing to put the suspension in comfort mode a lot around town...

man if u gonna start a thread about every sucky street in LA this forum would have more of those threads than 6MT vs. DCT threads.

+1 on Omama redoing all our fucking freeways and roads. they're just terrible. now idk about taking him back, i think there's a 90 day return policy. it's already passed 100. even costco wouldnt take him back

that's why i live in the OC where the streets are bigger and smoother. Even in the barrios of Santa Ana the roads are better than most of LA.
