Continuity mistake: There is a scene near the end of the movie, where the hero is chasing the two guys on motorcycles that just shot his friend. At one point, first the motorcycles, and then the car leap over a hill on the street. You can clearly see two ramps at the top of the hill, one for each motorcycle.
Continuity mistake: After Dom parks his car in the garage after the first race, and walks outside, the cop car that comes down the hill is a Ford Crown Victoria. When the cop car turns around in the middle of the street it's a Chevy Caprice. Easiest way to spot the difference? First car has wide lights, the second one doesn't.
Continuity mistake: The final hijacking scene was shot on Dominigoni Parkway Road. You can see where they pass the same background a few times. In the beginning of the scene they pass over the same bridge twice. You can also see where they switched from traveling east to west and vice versa.
Continuity mistake: After the street race at the start, Leon alerts everyone that the cops are coming. While everyone is scattering you see a closeup of Brian running around to the door of his car and opening it, then a bird's eye view of his car with no-one near it. Then you see other people running and getting into their cars, then you see Brian run up to his car, open the door again and get in.
Continuity mistake: At the first race when the cars are driving up to the start line to begin, the car furthest ahead is Brian's car (the green one), then it is Ja Rule's car (the red on with the yellow flames), the white car is third, and behind everyone is Dom's car (the red one). When the cars break at the start line, somehow the order of the cars reverses and Dom's car stops first while Brian's stops last and blows over the line.
Continuity mistake: When Brian pulls up in the warehouse alley in his Eclipse look at the car to his left. If it looks like Hector's car with no hood and the same chrome engine and graphics on the windshield, that's because it is. But when Hector says "That's mine." he points across the lot and the car is still next to them.
Continuity mistake: In the scene of the "race wars" when Jesse runs against the Johnny Tran's Honda S2000, at the moment when Jesse pushes his NOS button, his car has a red racing steering wheel, maybe a MOMO wheel, and three gauges on the "A column" (at the left of the windshield column) of his Jetta. When the shot changes to Jesse when he says "ha," the red MOMO wheel becomes in a grape Jetta wheel without NOS buttons and the gauges disappear from the car.
Continuity mistake: On the very first race (in where Ja Rule takes part in the event), Dom (Vin Diesel) is driving a red Mazda RX-7. After the drivers line up on the starting line, Dom lifts up the passenger seat cushion to his Mazda to reveal a nitrous oxide system with a spinning nozzle and two gauges. Immediately after you see Dom spin the nozzle open, the camera does a close up of the nozzle and gauges in the next shot. Note how the gauge frames extended out from the surface (a good distance) then turn completely flat for the close up, even the nozzle gets shifted from one side of the guages to the other.
Continuity mistake: This mistake occurs during the first racing scene between the four guys. It happens after Jesse and Ja Rule look under the hood of Brian's Eclipse. As soon as Brian says 'Am I worthy?' and he is in the middle of his sentence, it cuts to a different camera angle and shows Brian smiling but not moving his mouth while his words are still being said.
Continuity mistake: During the scene at the Diner when Brian is asking Dom for a slice of the action on how he makes the extra cash for car parts etc. Right as Brian says "Now whatever it is you're in on, I want in on it to", we see Dom with a grin on his face, the camera then cuts to a closer view and the expression on his face has changed.
Continuity mistake: During the final hijacking scene, Dom pulls in front of the truck so Vince can get pull out the passenger side windshield with his harpoon gun. However, if you look closely right before Vince shoots his gun for the first time, you can see that the passenger side windshield is not even there. The glare coming off of the driver side windshield makes it very easy to see the difference between the two.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brian is chasing Johnny Tran, he stops the car and shoots Johnny. Johnny spins out and falls off the bike. While he falls off the bike you can see a shopping cart on the side of the road, but when Brian runs over to see if he is dead, the cart is gone.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brian is with the Muse, Tanner and the FBI watchdog in the safe house kitchen, Muse makes a smart crack about getting off over Mia Toretto, then Brian pushes Muse very forcefully to the left of Tanner, but Muse ends up landing on the floor to the right of Tanner.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when, Dom knocks the Chinese guy off of his motorbike. In the previous shot if you slow it down you can see that it's a street full of houses to the left and right, but these suddenly vanish and are replaced by a big hill which the Chinese guy rolls down.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dom is pulling his red RX7 into the garage after the first race is broken up by the cops, he is making a right turn into the garage. When they cut to the front of the car pulling in the garage, his left signal light is on, meaning he made a left turn into the garage.
Continuity mistake: Right at the end when Vin and the rest are preparing to rob the final truck, Vin says something like "Let's go." A duffel bag of equipment comes flying at him, presumably from another person, that Vin catches in mid-air. In an immediate overhead shot from Vin's back, he has the bag in his hand but there is no one anywhere near him who could have thrown the bag. The closest person in maybe 25 feet away. The shallow angle that the bag arrived and the heavy equipment in it shows that it was a close throw of a few feet at most.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Dom get pulled over by Tran's gang, there is a shot of both Brian and Dom getting out of the car and shutting their doors. Then it cuts to a shot of Lance taking off his helmet. If you look in the background, you can see Brian getting out of his car again, and shutting his door again.
Continuity mistake: Watch the scene where everyone is scrambling to run to their cars after Leon yells "Cops!" When Mia runs and gets into the passenger seat of Letty's purple 240SX, you can see that the driver is not Letty. The driver looks nothing like Letty (hair and face are different).
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Dom and Brian arrive at Dom's place, Vince walks up to Dom and tells him "he had no right bringing the buster there." Just before Vince walks up, you see Dom sitting down putting his hand on his head. Next shot cuts to Vince walking up and cuts back to Dom who getting ready to sit down again then puts his hand on his head.
Continuity mistake: When the first street race takes place with the four cars, it is evident that the race takes place along a straight stretch of road. However, when the race finishes, everyone who was at the start line just a minute ago has magically appeared at the finish line, miles down the road.
