Goofs
The black SUVs used by the team frequently have US Government "G" plates. However, the plates are usually incorrect for the type of vehicle they are on. Plates with prefixes of G12 and G14 have been seen. G12 is a compact sedan and G14 indicates a large sedan, and would be incorrect for use on an SUV. The correct plate prefixes would either be G41 for a 2 wheel drive or G61 for a 4 wheel drive 1/2 ton vehicle.

While the show has used different model GulfStreams,they always have the same interior. There have been minor changes in the interior over the seasons. The size of the cabin shown is most likely the G450 or G550 which have similar interiors. A G100 or G200 is a much smaller cabin, narrower and not as much headroom when walking in aisle.

Q
How true to life is the series?
A
In real life the BAU does exist and uses the techniques shown on the show but only acts as a co-ordinator for various investigations, reviewing evidence and advising rather than taking over cases and personally solving them. They have no private jet, their offices are much more humble and the reach of their computer researchers far more limited (in real life Garcia would go to prison for what she does on the show). We often see members of the team accompany or even lead SWAT teams into action but in reality SWAT teams operate as cohesive units and any SWAT commander would tell the BAU to wait at one side whilst his unit performed their task. Their cases are always solved within a matter of days whereas real investigations of this type can take decades (one of the cliches of the show is 'The Unsub is accelerating' explaining why events move so quickly once the BAU are involved).
Q
Who was the gunman at the end of the Season Finale episode, "To Hell.... And Back"?
A
It was 'The Reaper', the unsub from the Season 4 episode "Omnivore" who escaped custody.
