The Pole Garage
The Pole Garage is a fantastic studio for women looking to learn pole dancing as beginners! They focus on an incredibly thoughtful and well-crafted, progressive-learning curriculum for beginner level dancers, which gives the students the right conditioning and instruction to bring them through to an intermediate to advanced level. The beginner classes are structured so that each week builds on the next, with session classes lasting 6 to 8 weeks per section. Once all beginner and intermediate sessions have been completed, dancers can then move into the open advanced classes and opt for different curriculum, like Pole Work or Transitions and Dance. There are a couple of mixed level classes each week, but most are either the session classes (open only to session students at that level - most classes are exclusive to that group of session students, scheduled for that time) or the advanced classes. Classes begin with a stretching and calisthenic style warm up designed to build conditioning that aids in pole dance (think lunges, stretching of shoulders and legs, ab work out, etc). The teachers take care fo welcome new students and each student is given one-on-one attention through the class. Class size is kept small (fewer than 12 people per class), and there are five 45mm poles available. Parking is accessed through the alley between 19th and 20th streets, accessible from the eastbound side of Olympic. Head to the end of the alley and turn left up the ramp, then park in the small lot at the top - or park at the meters on Olympic and walk up. You can also be buzzed in from the front of the building, on 20th. The studio is intimate, with real hardwood floors and red lighting. It creates a lovely atmosphere. This is a great place if you're not crazy about the insane competitive tricks, and just looking for a solid foundation in pole and a great group of women.

Layne's Westside VW Repair
LAYNE GIVES 110% TO THE CARS HE WORKS ON. My son Dakota has a 69 VW Bus and it needed rebuilt engine as well as many other things. Layne was meticulous about discussing every detail with us before doing any of the work or charging us anything. He spent a couple of hours working with Dakota to make sure he knew how to properly maintain the vehicle once it left his shop. His employees are friendly and competent. He cares about every car he works on and all of the owners as well. I feel so blessed to have met him and his lovey lady. The birds and cats that reside their just show you how much he cares. I will bring any VW I own to this awesome mechanic.

I had taken my car to a different garage to get a quote for a brake job on my BMW X5 and found their quote very fair I left my car that night and they called me the next morning and it was done. I was very pleased with the service and professionalism of the staff. This apparently is the place to bring your BMW because while I was there several other people had their BMW's in for a brake job too. I will definitely go back next time I need work on my car. They are the best brake service provider in Santa Monica.

A few days back the coolant in my x5 drained completely, the first thing that came to my mind was to call GI Automotive for help. I have serviced my car from the GI Automotive experts so many times and their services are truly amazing. I spoke with Amber and she arranged to get my car towed. At that time, I was assured that my BMW is in great safe hands. My car was repaired within 24 hours and I felt its performing even better. I surely give them 100% recommendations for car repair services in Santa Monica.

Finally, a great guy. Roberto gave me about 40% off the quoted price and did the job quickly. Any coldness you might get is simply because he is probably really busy, and is an all-business kind of guy. He will use the right parts the right way the first time, and he knows what he is doing. I will stick by him and I recommend all my friends to him for a great mechanic. Wait a while in his office and you will see all his other clients love him!

Loved the nice touch of cookies, bagels and cream cheese, coffee, lattes, etc. it was great.I would definitely recommend Santa Monica Lexus service.

This shop saved me over $1000! I had a problem with my turbo and intercooler and the dealership wanted to charge me $600 in parts and $500 in labor to resolve my issue. I came here and Jesus fixed my problem in 20 min! he found another potential issue and took care of that as well. they're honest and fair as I left there only paying $120. I will have my GLI serviced there from now on!

Great service. Needed help with my Bluetooth module, they fixed right away. Great service. I thought it would take a long time and cost a lot. I was wrong, they fixed it in less than a half an hour and the charge was minimal

Been using Accurate Auto service since the 1970's: The best! I once, only once, went to a 'Discount Oil' change center-never again! It was such a let down after the years of quality and levels of service from Accurate Auto.

Le Mans Body & Paint at Santa Monica
I had to bring my car to Le Mans after someone backed into my door. They made it look like new, took care of all insurance matters, completely hassle free experience! I won't go to any other body shop.
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
