Mode Carbon l Californication: Our West Coast Journey

Mode Carbon l Santorini Blue E92 M3

As many of you may or may not know, Curt (username: Curt2000), was kind enough to lend us his M3 for this summer's show season. We made sure to provide a vivid photo documentary of the journey that ensued. We started in Vegas and ventured through the desert to Southern California.

On the way back from Vegas we made a little pitstop in the desert for some photography Big props to Drew Orsumi for the fantastic pictures.







Our camera car



Upon arriving back to LA we got her photo-shoot ready! This photoshoot we took on PCH near Santa Monica.























Next stop: Bimmerfest! Great time







































My girl.



Post-Bimmerfest photoshoot with Gabriel Milori.









Speeddistrict WSIR fun! Definitely the best day of our California trip Special thanks to Tightie, Motorrenngruppe and Race Precision Motorsport.



























Targa Trophy in one word!



Time to bring BLUE back home...







Special thanks to Curt2000 for his serious ride, EAS for servicing her, RPM for servicing her, Speedistrict for hosting amazing events, MRG the track team and all the photographers that assisted us throughout the journey! It was a pleasure meeting so many great people along the way, and we would like to thank the West Coast for the generous hospitality. We will be back soon

Agreed! Best non-frozen color for the E92 M3 IMO.

This is so cool. Really makes me think I should drive my E92 way more than I do now.

We totaled 3000 miles in 2 months. Saw the most beautiful driving roads and really got to know the car so well.

Stunning ride Curt! What were the specs of your ec-7's and tires? I love the profile, not too flat or concave, and tires compliment them perfectly.

Thanks man! They are 18x10 square in anthracite finish. The tires are Toyo R888s 275/35/18 all around which requires full linear spring coilovers to fit in the front with some camber adjustments but its totally worth it!
