Photos of my Modjeska Canyon Drive this weekend!!!

I had an absolute BLAST driving through the Modjeska Canyon area. I ran into several other M's. Not sure if you're on here, but I saw an alpine white M3 and an AY M4, gave you both a wave. This drive went from an absolutely STUNNING photo-op to a straight up rainstorm. You can see the storm rolling in on some of the pics. I'm certainly not a skilled photographer, but I hope you guys enjoy the shots anyway!

If anybody in SoCal wants to go on the next one shoot me a message.

The main road out there is a pretty great road it connects to several little canyon runs. And you can stop off at Lake Irvine for an additional shoot. There is an amazing panoramic view right off the 261, but I missed the small turnoff twice since it's a small dirt road off the freeway

That little driveway in front of the gate has been my photo shoot area for years now! Very cool spot.

Haha the next time I head out there, I am definitely going to find a secluded trail and undoubtedly drive up a dirt road. Are there any other direct areas in Modjeska Canyon that you like?

There are three other spots out there that I love. I will post up some old pics in a few.

Nice photos OP. Quick question. Do you have any shots looking down on your car? Looks like the back section is not wrapped. I'm thinking of wrapping my trim, but that's the one piece that concerns me a bit. Btw, on the rest of the trim, did you do glossy or matte?

I haven't wrapped the rear piece yet, I actually ran out of vinyl. I went with 3m gloss black vinyl and it matches the paint perfectly to the naked eye. For the rear piece, just grab a sheet of vinyl that covers the ENTIRE rear piece without having to follow the curve. You'll have a ton of extra vinyl but it'll be a way easier install if you're a beginner.

Thanks bro, check out the timestamp on the screenshot from my phone. It was sunny, bright, and gorgeous (with clouds in the distance)and then within 20 minutes I actually got stuck in a puddle and had to get towed out. I'm sure I could have made it out, but didn't want to risk flinging sh!t all over.

I've only been out there at night. Will have to check out some of the side roads during the day. Car and road look great!

Sounds good! Organizing an M trip sometime in August. I have an amazing spot that will fit around 6 cars for a sweeping view of Orange County

It's out in Modjeska Canyon (Northwest of Lake Forest). I'll set up another little sprint through there and choose a lunch spot in the next several weeks. It was a really really nice secluded drive.
