The Archive Pics

So, my sigfile has the two shots on the PDF from the Vin Archive. This is probably a noob question but does anyone know if they take actual shots of each car or does the system generate one based on the specs of the car. These have the right wheels, color and the interior looks right...but then I think would they really do that for each car? Of course, that's what I thought when I first saw the site too. Link is for those even newer than me.

This was HUGE help when I was shopping.

Pretty sure they use the pics that BMW used in their online configurator. They do not take photos of every car, Its all rendered on a computer.
