Gegen die Wand AKA Head-on (2004, Birol Ünel, Sibel Kekilli)
Stefan Baguette reports this movie about the marriage between two Germans with Turkish roots - "Sibel (Sibel Kekilli) marries Cahit (Birol Ünel) to escape her family, but it is only later that the two of them fall in love, leading to grave complications.

Early in the film, the two of them argue about marriage while riding on a Hamburger Hochbahn Mercedes-Benz Citaro. They are thrown out by the Turkish bus driver and the bus can be seen leaving the stop as they are stranded at the side of the road. Curiously, the sound doesn't match the vehicle - the sound engineers seem to have used a recording of some completely different bus.

In another scene, during a car journey, a Hamburger Hochbahn Mercedes-Benz O405N2 can be seen for a second.

At the end of the film, Cahit leaves Istanbul coach station for his birthplace. He is riding on a yellow three-axle coach of a Turkish operator, which is filmed from the nearside and the rear. I haven't been able to identify the manufacturer - it has styling elements (rear lights etc.) of the Mercedes-Benz Tourismo coaches built in Turkey, but is no such vehicle."
