It's a big problem here in Irvine too, my complex is full of these douches, yet the cops can't do anything and Irvine Apartment Communities won't cooperate.

Same demographic too as in Glendale/Burbank now too

Audis, Benz, Range Douches, and a few Ferraris too. Plenty of tuners in 10 year old civics and lame exhausts to go with it.

2 months to go on lease thank god

My favorite is the new kid from China with a gallon of hair spray racing me to the next red light looking forward and tough on Jeffrey while I go about my business

There are too many people who think that, because they're good at Grand Theft Auto or a console racing game, they understand the physics of driving a real car. That's not how that works, bros.

OP, I can relate. I used to work in Burbank right when I moved to LA to work at a company owned and staffed mainly by armenians. Prior to moving I seldom had ran into people from that said community and thus had no opinion about it, good nor bad. Very quickly I started noticing the disruptive behaviors you describe. Groups of younger males wearing track suits, shaved heads, large visible gold chain, driving around in tuned German brand cars in a very aggressive way while blasting "music" through the windows. These young lads often try harder than recommended to emulate italian gangsters like Tony Montana (except he is supposed to be Cuban, but don't tell them they would be heart broken) exposing as many luxury brand items as possible while living with mum and dad.

The tacky, ill taste predominating around Glandale/Burbank account for the reason I would rather live in North Korea than there any day of the week. But hey, this is a free country and everyone is entitled to their sick tastes, just not their sick driving style specially when it endangers people in the community. The Glendale police really needs to start cracking down seriously on these recurrent driving incivilities.

What do you mean? I love modifying my exhaust to sound like an endless fart!
