#9 of 11 2010 or 2009?

Can someone clarify if the updates mentioned in this article apply to the model that is soon to be released in the US, or to a model being released next year? One reason I ask is the late release of the models in the US has led many to believe this will be marketed as a 2010 car. Plus the "facelift" and most other changes mentioned in this article were also mentioned in the October article referencing this years car.
So, I'm just a bit confused... I like the updated version of this car VERY much, especially the tuned suspension. If those changes aren't on the soon-to-be-released version, I would probably order different options... Will the improvements mentioned be in this years model or next?

These appear on the 2009 model.
The 2009 came out sort of late, in fact dealers have plenty of 2008s left, and they are being discounted heavily.
I may buy one of those left over 2008s tonight. The discount was too hard to resist.
A year ago the hard tops were $25k and up, I'm looking at under $21k! Swee-eeeet!
I'll have to deal with that bottle holder in the door, maybe pad it somehow if it keeps bothering me.
