Vincent Arcelo: 2003 BMW 330i

Vincent Arcelo began building his 2003 BMW 330i while through a hard time, and he used the car as his personal outlet. Arcelo's crew served as a support group for both himself and for his car, allowing him to bounce ideas off of them and decide which direction to take the car. After two years of show seasons, Arcelo was ready for an extreme transformation. He had the car sent out for a custom version of the Rocket Bunny Pandem kit for the E46, had it retrofitted and custom-made for his sedan.
