    Your manual hatch shouldn't and probly hasn't got a dpf,it will have a cat bolted to the turbo though.
    I removed my dpf from my previous cdti auto and it passed the mot fine.

    cdti Auto estates should have a dpf too shouldn't they ?,and when i said to a tech in vauxhall about all cdti auto hatch and cdti manual/auto estates having a dpf,he replied its not 100% proven for all cdti auto hatch or cdti manual/auto estates to have a dpf fitted,i couldn't argue with him as i know no different,only what i read on forums.
