BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Sedan

I drove an Acura TL, TSX, Camry V6, Lexus ES300, G35, BMW 325 and the MB C230 and C240. The TL was too stiff, TSX was boring, Lexus was nice but felt too big for me, Camry was nice and smooth but uninspiring, G35 drove awesome but felt a little cheap inside and I was not willing to sacrifice the mpg, BMW drove good but I felt every bump in the road. Thought I wanted a C230 but would up with the C240 and glad I did. Love the turning radius, brakes are INCREDIBLE! Although my car is only rated at 168 HP it has plenty of passing power (IMO as much as a 2006 c230 v6, rated at 201HP. I timed it 50-70 at 6.5 secs.). With the VSC (Vehicle Stability control, standard) it plows through water puddles like a rock. I have had had a few problems but fortunately they were covered under ext. warranty. I think the most important thing is to drive everything and get what YOU like. I am very happy with this car. I keep trying to like the Lexus because the reliability is better but I can't. By the way, at one time, I said I would never buy a MB and then I drove one.

Does anyone know how to turn off the sos button, besides calling the 1-800-number.
Thank you for any replies.
