Alright, I know how photoshop works, but one thing I can't do is changing the color of a car. I've seen seveal post, the color change is just perfect, keeping shadows etc... Can someone brief me a How To on changing colors...

Well first select parts that you need to paint, then Edit Copy, new layer edit paste.
the select that layer, go to Image -> Adjust
start playing with Hue, then Color Balance then brighnes and contrast.
couple of min playing with all those and you will get the color.
Some colors can't be made from others. I still couldn't make a silver, white, or black keeping all shadows and reflections

Do you have a tip on selecting the area... caus with the mouse and a pointer/cutter, it's pretty hard to get it very well cut...

use Polygonal Lasso Tool

if you made a worng selection hit BACKSPACE
if you selected something and need select somthing else hold SHIFT and select another part
if you need deselect something in selected area hold ALT and deselect
