The Ghost Writer

Continuity mistake: When the Ghost writer stops the BMW to follow the sat nav there is a car in the background. It vanishes then reappears as the film changes from close up to panoramic shots.

Continuity mistake: When driving to the house for the first time, the taxi stops at the gates for a security check and Ewan is sitting in the back seat on the left (he passes his passport out the left window). In the next shot, as the taxi pulls to a stop at the house, Ewan is sitting on the right with his bag still in the middle of the seat. I doubt he switched sides for the short haul up the driveway.

Mistakes

When Ewan McGregor drives to Belmont MA to visit Paul Emmett, he checks the mailbox to see whose mail it's addressed to. It shows the name Paul Emmett, address, Belmont MA 02324, which is the wrong zip code; it is the zipcode for Bridgewater MA, and Belmont MA should be 02478.

Trivia

McGregor finds that the BMW navigation system is active, and decides to follow the directions, having no idea where it will lead. There are obviously much easier and direct ways to check the entered target destination of a sat nav than actually following it. Instead of this being a mistake, it is most likely a script choice; portraying McGregor as stressed, technically unknowing, inexperienced driver of modern luxury cars, or all of that.
