Carlos the Jackal

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I saw this (great) film over the weekend and the w116 made numerous appearences in the 70s scenes as diplomatic transport in various European countries, as well as just in the background of a number of shots.  By and large I think they got the cars spot on in this film, baring a few date inconsistencies.  One funny thing with these sort of films is that every car is obviously on loan from enthusiasts - all the taxis etc are in pristine condition, certainly not true of the ones I take these days ;-)  But imho Carlos the Jackal is well worth watching if you have the time.
