velocity inlet vs. moving wall boundary condition
 
We are modeling a car body in a box shaped fluid. Is there a considerable difference between using a velocity inlet with velocity in the direction of the flow and a moving wall boundary condition in Fluent for underneath a moving car body? Also, what is the difference between using a velocity inlet with velocity in the direction of the flow and a symmetry plane in the far field. Also, if you have any references on performing CFD on car bodies that would greatly appreciated.
