W140 S Class - width

Does anyone know the maximum width of a W140 with the mirrors folded in? I've moved house and my garage opening is only 80" wide - will the Merc fit?

TIA Andy

According to Robert Nitske's "Mercedes-Benz Production Models,, 1946-1995," the W 140 is 74.2 inches wide.

i hope the 80" measurement is just the door and that it opens up once you're past the door
