1) Body doubles, stunt doubles, and CGI were used to complete the film following Paul Walker's death. Walker's brothers Caleb Walker and Cody Walker were among the doubles, and also provided voice-over for the character Brian O'Conner. 

2) Due to body doubles and CGI being used for Paul Walker, the scenes with him are mixed up throughout the film, showing him or his body doubles. The first scene containing a CGI Paul Walker happens roughly fifteen minutes into the movie. 

3) Immediately before the building-jump sequence at the Etihad Towers penthouse, Brian describes to Dom the real-life car that they are getting into, in detail: a 3.4 million dollar Lykan HyperSport, only seven of which have been made (not including the stunt cars used for filming). Once they get into the car, however, Brian is represented with CGI, because the latter part of the scene was filmed after Paul Walker's death. 

4) Jordana Brewster (Mia) had to shoot her scenes at the very end of filming, because of her lead role on the since-canceled Dallas (2012) television series. She has stated that it was immensely difficult, given that most of her scenes were with her onscreen husband Brian, and by the time her scenes were filmed, Paul Walker had already died, requiring her to perform scenes with either one of Paul's two brothers acting as his body double, or with him inserted via computer graphics, or footage from an earlier film.
