I was thinking about this, just last night. Where have I seen the 800 series, playing a prominent role in a television program, or film? The 1988 film, Taffin, starring a young Piers Brosnan, has some excellent footage of a nearly new, Oporto Red 820i or Si. The film seems to have been forgotten, but, it does crop up every now and then.
Another forgotten show from 2001, starring Johnny Vaughan, featured a number of Flame Red Mk1 Fastbacks. The base car was supposed to be a flame red 820i, but, it seems a Vitesse (without boot spoiler), was also used.
Soon, in the media Centre, we hope to be able to bring some screen grabs, and hopefully some clips of the 800 in action on the big, and small screen. I don't know about you, but, I always get a warm feeling when I see the car I dedicate so much time to, appear in a television program or film. Well, thanks for reading this far, and catch you soon on the next installment.
