surround view question

Random question for anyone with surround view (courtesy of my 5 year old).
She wants to know if the color of the "car" displayed when the top view is in use is the color of your respective vehicle. Our F15 is Space Gray and the top view shows it as a silver/gray. She was wondering if your car is white (or black or any other color) would the vehicle on the screen display match.

I didn't have an answer, so I figure I would poll you guys!

Ours is sparking brown outside, but white (or silver or whatever it is) on the surround view. I think they are all the same color on surround view.

Your kid should work for BMW. Her ideas would personalize the vehicles a lot better and their customers would praise BMW for paying that much more attention to detail.

Thank you everyone!
She was a little disappointed when I broke the news to her...
in fact, her exact words were "well that's silly, they should fix that".
Perhaps we have an automotive engineer in the making, although I doubt BMW would appreciate her thoughts on exterior paint color options.

Hi, the "car" in the top surround view is just a picture, its physically not your car.

Start from German culture attitude: we (germans) are always right. No matter what.

Now you see how much appreciation any great idea will have in Germany.

Your kid is great!

My six year old has been bothered by the fact that our X5 is black the surround view shows everything accurately except it turns our car silver!
