  1. You might double-check on this. My understanding is that no settlement funds have nor could have been released yet so maybe you got a discount but still might have cash coming from the settlement fund, which requires documentation to be submitted by next month. Caveat: I am often wrong. --Bob

  5. If you are registered with Porsche as the owner of your car you should be in a database that will cause you to be mailed forms at some point in the process. You can also register via the class action's website as a belt+suspenders precaution, particularly if you have already had the replacement (I did). --Lawyer Bob
