And this shows where it now lives with it's stablemate:

Can just about get comfortable clearance to open drivers' doors to check strap point by topping and tailing them - the eagle eyed will probably be able to spot the strategically positioned floormats/lino used to get positioning just right!

Nightfire does look nice on a MK1.

Nice garage space you have there too. :)

Cheers, took hours to clear it out and make it car-ready. Amazing the crap people leave around...

You'll be spending a lot of time on ebay listing said crap then! :wink: :lol:

That's a nice garage in several ways, not least because it has two 800s sat inside! :wink: :D
Cheers,

That's a beautiful restoration. And a nice accommodation upgrade too :)

Thanks Marc, have been watching your cars for a good while now hoping mine might one day get near to how they look :)

Just had the bucket and sponges out (and a bit of interior cleaner for the red car), here are some results showing both my Mk1 H reg 820i's together - I know, what are the chances of having 2 identical ones?

Hope they display OK enough to enjoy :D

(In case you're wondering about the gaps, the bonnets are latched open from the cleaning)

Thanks very much guys :D

Just walked past them in the dark with low level artificial light, hope the camera captures the depth and travel in the nightfire here, I'd say it's slightly more zingier in the flesh (maybe its just my screen, yours might be better):

Am having a flurry of pictures these last few days, this time because I couldn't ignore the sun on the car in the work car park :D

That is a lovely looking car, what a difference the sunlight makes on the colour!
