Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello,

You will own the copyright in your work, so you will not be in breach of any copyright laws by doing what you are proposing to do.

Hi, so I can do that? But probably I am not allowed to mention in my marketing that it is a BMW?

No, you cannot mention BMW without a licence/permission from BMW.

All the best. I await your positive rating.

what about a car silhouette from the side, like what I just about to attach. I ask this, because sites abandon this, and they say I can not sell this because of copyright issues.

If this is your work, I do not see any issues as I said previously.
