Opening Montages

All of the season 3 Miami Vice logos are backlit with an intense, vibrant white as opposed to the earlier pinks and oranges.

Season three had only two versions of the opening montage.  They were the same with the exception of one segment.  It was either a clip of Bal Harbour from the cut down or a shot of the Testarossa on Collins Avenue headed north past the Fontainebleau from episode 47, Killshot.  All the other segments were the same and in the same order.  There was some switching of the montages due to the order in which they decided to run the episodes.
