the movie "Burn after Reading" with Brad pit and John malkovich and George Clooney a yellow 300D I am guessing gets rear ended while the Malkovich character is driving it...
and he is a CIA agent apparently...

Looks like he was trying to escape someone too. W123 diesels are NOT good getaway cars, that's what 6.9's are for.
