Of course computer vs real life images are going to look different, with the real life ones looking better and more dynamic.I'm hoping Chrispy's suggestion that the colors will be more dynamic in real life vs computer imagines will make the choices more palatable. The comparison of red between the render and the mustang is a big difference. That red is not an auto-skip.
Even real life images can make colors look completely different depending on lighting. Look at how Rapid Red can look in sunny vs indoors conditions.
