    I got an email last week about BIM being in Los Angeles.

    I will have to see about visiting sometime next year.

    It is really good tbh, I suppose nice somewhere else gets to enjoy it for a while!

    But I only went three times in London. I wasn't ready for it to leave!!😭😭😭

    Seriously, though, I'm sad it's no longer there as it's a great exhibition. Any Bond fan living within reasonable distance to its new home in LA, should definitely check it out and it's right that others get a chance to see it around the world.

    I'm sure the Harry Potter exhibition will draw in a lot more visitors anyway, makes sense for the Transport Museum to stage that, as they no doubt need to recoup their losses of the last 18 months and let's face it, they don't come much bigger than the world of Harry Potter.

    I'm just disappointed that I won't get to see the NTTD items in there, as I didn't get chance to go again one last time, before it closed for good.

    It was amazing to be able to be able to get a Bond fix anytime you were walking through town. Even if just popping into the shop.

    Yet it’s been announced Bond In Motion will be at Beaulieu in UK !! Im confused!

  • GiugiaroGiugiaro Posts: 23MI6 Agent

    And the NTTD Scissor Wing glider will also be there !!

    So….. are the Covent Garden Bond in Motion car in LA or in Uk ? Or is the collection split up !

    There's a NTTD exhibit in Beaulieu for the next year, the rest of BiM will be in LA. But there's also more than one each of these NTTD vehicles; there may be some in LA too I guess. Or they may be holding the NTTD vehicles back so they can do a relaunch in a year: it's a good way of enticing people to come for a second visit.

    I think it's an evolving display anyway as one of the 159s from QoS was up for sale not that long ago

    It was either that.....or the priesthood

    Looks like I'll be having a day out in Beaulieu soon.. 😊

    I think there should be some sort of permanent James Bond Museum or some Visitors Centre where we can all view things like the Cars on a permanent basis and enjoy them.

    Beaulieu here I come! Shame they closed the Covent Garden location - it was lovely to be able to pop in.

    I agree - a permanent Bond exhibition would be great.

    My name has changed! I’m no longer I’m DB6

    I went to the original Beaulieu Exhibition back in 2012 and loved it shame I wasn't able to attend in London, and Beaulieu is a little far away for me for the No Time To Die Exhibition, I live in Scotland. The one question I do have about the Exhibition and I know it's currently in America is why is there no BMW Z.3 from Goldeneye included?

    Let's hope Bond in Motion returns to the UK some day, as I've mentioned elsewhere they should open a permanent exhibition or visitors centre somewhere in Britain so we can all enjoy these awesome cars.

    My total guess about the BMW Z3 is that the one(s) in GoldenEye were so early (the film was made before the car launched and it was pretty much the first time the Z3 was seen in public) that they were only lent to the production by BMW and EON never took possession of them, as they did with most other cars they use. Bond In Motion doesn't have a real Z8 from TWINE either, the one on show was one of the replicas the production made. Maybe the Z3s are in a BMW museum in Munich or something.

    Ha! Yes, here you go; it was a guess but it does indeed seem to be in the BMW museum in Munich:
