New C350-Buy or wait?

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2011 C350 4matic.
Now I see hints of a revamped C on the horizon. Are the changes significant?
Should I buy now or wait a few months?

thanks,
Mark

This is a better question for the W204 forum (look in the sedans section). Most of the classes undergo a face lift midway into the model run and they will probably know when the C350 is due for it.

2011 is the last year for the current V6 engine.

You can get a 350 with 4matic? I thought only the 300s had the 4matic option...

The new V6 will be a 60-degree engine, i.e. no more balancer shaft.
