First But Not Last: Marc-Antoine Jeanson’s 2007 BMW 323i

Marc-Antoine Jeanson has been in love with BMW for as long as he can remember. So when it came time to embark on his first project built ever, the 2007 BMW 323i was a perfect candidate. With a focus on style and a show-worthy build, a passion handed down to him from a good friend, Jonathan Vallieres, Jeanson got to work.

Carefully chosen modifications all come together to set the build apart, but Jeanson’s favorite part of this build is the interior. "I love the results," he expresses. A custom white diamond-stitched reupholstery and matching white interior trim really give the car a classy feel both inside and out.

"It's my first real build," Jeanson states, "but not my last."
