    I'm pretty sure registering an out of state leased car in the state of California is even worse than buying a house. Absolute insanity. Employees here are not helpful to boot.

    If you go one street over, you can park for free on Poinsettia. But you need to use the lot if you are registering your car.

    There is a major lack of parking here. It took me 35 mins just to pull in the lot and another 20 mins to get a parking. Allow plenty of time for parking wether its in the lot or anywhere else.

    If it's approaching closing time (5pm) & you're waiting for your number to be called, DO NOT go outside to linger. Security will not let you back in after 5pm, even though you have a # - game over X-(
