    Instead of posting more in http://priuschat.com/forums/gen-ii-...t-class-action-update-settlement-reached.html, I figured I'd start a new thread if people want to post or discuss the award letters they received.

    Today, I received my award letter and they've given me a preliminary reimbursement award of $110.46.

    I'm happy with this amount as it's the amount I filed a claim for (cost of of the 2 Philips D4R bulbs I bought on Amazon + tax). I used one to replace a failing bulb that happened a bit outside the 5 years/50K miles (which I explained when I wrote to them) and said I figured the other bulb will go out soon anyway, since it's the same D4R.

    Too bad it didn't start failing within the 5 years/50K miles so that I didn't have to DIY. It turned into a big project for me and I had to eventually pull the front bumper cover partly off (posted about it in another thread)...

    As far as I know, the class only applies to 06-09. Have I missed something?

    Oops! I might need to get the mods to fix the title.

    ^ Hate to bump threads but anyone else have any updates of their own to post? I couldn't be the only one who has received an award letter.

    Did the letter happen to say when the reimbursements would be going out?

    from - hidsettlement.com:

    Important Update – Pursuant to the Fairness Hearing held on October 17, 2011, the Court granted Final Approval of this Settlement.

    I'm guessing the checks will start going out shortly?
