Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire vault chase scene, the condition of Dom and Brian's car windows switch between being damaged and perfectly intact. (01:42:20)

Other mistake: Throughout the entire chase scene at the end, the vault creates sparks on the road. Yet when they get to the bridge, no sparks appear. This cannot be due to the vault being empty at this point, as the vault itself is 10 tonnes, as mentioned earlier in the film. (01:49:00)

Other mistake: In the scene where Toretto and Hobbs are fighting, the fight is so violent that Toretto's eyes are run through glass, faces are smashed into concrete and beat endlessly. Yet when the fight is over, the next scene shows both with not so much as a mark on their faces. (01:28:00)

Continuity mistake: During the vault chase scene, the vault spins on two separate occasions, tangling the lines in the process. The first time, it is being dragged out of the police station and the second when it destroys half a bank. The lines could not have been untangled, because both times they guys were turning to the right and the vault spins in the same direction. (01:40:30)

Factual error: When the bus slams into Brian's car at the start, Brian's car doesn't move an inch. Given the speed and weight of the bus, Brian's car should have been shunted a good distance. (00:01:45)

Continuity mistake: When the mini-gun starts shooting at Dom on the bridge, at first we get a shot of a line of bullets hitting the door. In the next shot, the door is fine and the first barrage of bullets hit the bonnet. (01:47:45)

Continuity mistake: As the cars are being stolen from the train car, they're violently dropped onto the ground, yet they don't have a scratch on them. The best example is the vintage Corvette that Vin Diesel drives out of the train car. The car falls at least 6 feet, landing on the front left corner of the bumper, yet seconds later, the car is in perfect condition. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: Almost all the cars aren't with Brazilian plates. The plates here are always XXX- Where X are letters and numbers.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mia and Brian are about to jump off the roof, when a gunman takes aim there's a cameraman to the bottom right below him. (00:32:35)

Continuity mistake: When Dom and the gang burn all the money, they smash one guy pretty good, broken nose and cuts over his face. When this guy explains what happened to Reyes, there are no marks on his face. (00:49:30)

Revealing mistake: When Vince drives off with the first car out of the train, tyre marks from previous takes can be seen in the sand. (00:11:00)

Audio problem: When Hobbs gets out of his "four wheeled tank", he readies his M4 and there is a sound of him cocking it. However, his free hand is nowhere near either the M4 itself, or the underbarrel shotgun. (01:29:50)

Continuity mistake: The hole in the plastic which is around the vault Han ordered changes after Tej says "You got a 100 million dollars in a safe, are you going to put somebody else's handprint on it?" This is easiest to spot around the palm scanner: at first, it is completely free, but after that line, the plastic suddenly hangs in front of it. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: When O'Connor blocks the bus on the two-lane highway with his vehicle, the bus swerves around his car towards the shoulder, clips the right rear of the car, and breaks the vehicle's rear window. In the next shot, the bus reverses angles, flips over the left rear of O'Connor's car nearest the center line, becomes airborne, and then rolls over and over down the center of the highway. If it had continued on its initial trajectory, it would have crushed his vehicle and continued onto the shoulder. (00:01:45)

Revealing mistake: Reyes shuts the safe after putting a price on Brian and Dom's heads. We see him close the safe from a camera angle inside the safe. When the safe is shut there is a light reflected on the inside of the door that can't be coming from anything that's known to be in the safe - must be the camera or similar. (00:55:25)

Continuity mistake: In the first film, Vince gets his arm caught up in steel wire while hijacking a lorry. We then see he has scars up his arm. However when we first see Vince in this film the scars are no longer present. They then show up again inside the house.

Continuity mistake: There is one point during the vault scene where a cop is leaning out the passenger window shooting at Brian and Dom while driving down the pavement. However when that car crashes just 2 seconds later, he's not in the window, which has been wound up. (01:47:50)

Question: (SPOILERS) I'm just curious where the cavalcade of money came from. Brian and Mia hit Rio all but broke, which is why they agree to the train heist job. Dom arrives not long after, fresh out of his orange jump suit. Possibly he had a nice stash of cash he could pick up, but no mention is made of this. Then it starts. They've double-crossed the heist and are tearing the car apart in a fully equipped garage. Apparently they know Rio very well to find such a facility, but someone would still want payment/rent. Then they escape with nothing but their clothes and the chip, but end up in an apartment where they can casually plan and sip cold beer. They decide on the super-heist and immediately transfer to an apartment-condo with a million-dollar view. As the crew shows up, they must be bringing some major investment funds with them. A gigantic warehouse-factory for a base of operations. Loads of high end computer surveillance gear. Sure, they steal or win the cars, but they use tons of components to reinforce them. They order a duplicate top-of-the-line vault for practicing on! (Maybe Amazon waives the delivery fee on such a purchase). It just starts to feel that if they divvied up all the seed money, they'd find they really didn't need to commit the robbery.

Answer: They end up in Rio where Vince is major player as shown with him telling his men to stand down. This means he's going to have access to a fully equipped garage and a home for rest and planning. They then decide on the super heist as you put it. This leads to the team meeting up in an abandoned warehouse. Plenty of those around. All the crew have their own talents and contacts. All they need to do is call in a few favours to get their equipment sent over. The even comments on this when he gets the new safe saying "we had a life before we met you." So the equipment isn't a problem.
