Have you ever noticed how much of the action takes place inside one very small area? (6th St bridge?). It's almost like the filmakers had a permit to film in that area and made the most of it!!
The scene where Lite shoots in to the house was filmed in San Pedro.
If you look at the map in the beginning montage, the setting is in New Mexico, not LA. [Thanks to Mark Sweeny]
4th street bridge over Sante Fe Ave: - This was the scene where Otto was chasing the Malibu on foot. He leans over the side of the bridge to puke, and suddenly the Malibu appears from under the bridge. This area is where Mateo St. turns into Sante Fe Ave. under the 4th St. bridge. The warehouse that is briefly shown before Otto runs down the bridge's concrete staircase is the old Maxwell House Coffee building (circa 1924). It is still there to this day.
The big question is where was the Repo Yard location? I know it is somewhere between Wall St. & Crocker St. (west to east) and 4th St. & 8th St. (north to south). There has been so much developement in the Fashion District since the 80's that the area looks more like a Tijuana market than an industrial area as it used to be. Can anyone help me on where the repo yard was located? [Thanks to Brian Mckinley]
