The Muppet Movie (1979) has a white W116 at the very beginning.

If I take a video of my car, does that count?

I'm just watching the 2005 movie 'House of Wax' and a nice W116 appears during the Paris Hilton death scene. She hides behind it. I think it's some kind of brown, perhaps Milan brown. Looks to be in pretty good shape under the dust.

She looks better that way. Paris, that is.

Anyhoozle, Trailer Park Boys, just noticed this a week ago. It's the episode called "Closer to the Heart" where Ricky kidnaps Alex Leifson. Apparently, Mr. Lehy's wife drives a silver W116.

Surely that's a 123?

Hmm, that's made me think... Do you guys say "one two three" or "one twenty-three" or what? I say one one six for the 116. Does anyone here say one sixteen? Or a hundred and sixteen? lol.

Is there a right way to say it?

this conversation has probably been had before...  :-X

Yeah, the silver one is a w123, but I admit they can look identical from a distance. I say one-twenty-three and one-sixteen.

One of only two (IIRC) people to have been banned from the ORG.  In his case, it was for unruly behaviour and thread-whoring in the extreme.
