downtown houston is really really bad. i had to have an alignment done today. the service advisor told me it's probably the roads here downtown. as a result, the two worn tires i had are really worn. thankfully i was about to order new tires anyways. s03s here i come. ugh. thankfully it was alignment and not something more painful....

yeah citywide not so bad, but downtown is HORRIBLE. ugh. my service advisor told me (he drives an older m5) that he blew two shocks in the past 3 months driving downtown. as far as i can tell advantage bmw downtown seems like a pretty good service dealer.


)= i forgot to tell them not to wash it. ugh, hopefully no swirlies

but, New Orleans is as bad or worse CITYWIDE
You want bad. Try Pittsburgh PA. The worst! At least they were way back in '80. Between the salt they use in the winter and the freeze/thaw cycles.... Made me wanna open an alignment shop there.

Pittsburgh? Bah. Try Boston! :) A $15B infrastructure projects changes the roads underneath you as you drive. Every time you go through a road, they change the way it's routed! Potholes abound, dips everywhere, large bumps just as common, roads in pittiful condition, traffic like nutz, drivers that are crazy, and students that are worth 10 pts each. Always an adventure.
