Mad Photoshop Skills, G20 3 Series Render

Unfortunately the video commentary is in French, but just watching the process is mesmerising!

The end result does actually look very good!

Really clever, getting 'reflections' from other photos and using styling cues from the latest models. Did try it with English subtitles but he was talking too fast!

Going to go out on a limb.

White
Black
Blue
Grey
4xBrowns (are brown paints cheap right now? Karin Habib seems to look a metallic brown)
Some MSport Blue in this video

Will they remove any silver like on the 5er?

Individual paint is getting popular

My guess was LEDs because of that horizontal divider, could be wrong though

Yes I certainly expect them to be LEDs. I was just wondering of reflector or projector LEDs. From the picture I think projector. Any view on this?

Not sure but you can see a lot of detail in the film though, it looks good.

I quite like the alu b pillar, although that could just be tape!

Looks like same as 5 series and X3, projector for low beam and reflector for high beam.

Probably just tape to protect the ridiculously easy to scratch gloss black.

Unmarked cars are more likely to be grey or black in my limited experience.

Mirror caps look a bit harder to change / copy M Perf ones.

Wonder if the indicator still dazzles you when in the drivers seat

True, but people see a white BMW 3 coming up fast in their mirrors and jump out of the way, they just seem to assume it's a copper. Any other colour and they just stay there at 71mph...Ö.
It worked with Volvo's when the police used T5, they just assumed white Volvo = Police and moved over
