    Thing is, regens dont just happen when the car is hot. The car will do a regen after so many miles of running, regardless of the DPF state, so be prepared if she starts smoking heavily, it's likely it will only be that and not a blown engine.

    Just having a laugh.......something I read on a previous thread. I got a s**te sense of humour!

    Ive got a 2.2dti siggy design (I gave it a wash today). I might have a go at doing mine. (if its got one) I would probably just drill straigt through 10/12mm if i was going to do it......?
    The thing is everything is ok with the car at the mo so would you recomend just to leave well alone and wait till it goes belly up?
    I do like the sound of a bit more pull though.

    the saying if its not broke why fix it springs to mind but if you going to do it take the lot out as once off may as well and if it brakes up inside it will rattle like ****. its easy tho mate just take you anger out on it lol ill post my pics up there not perfect as i had loads to do today so just cracked on

    Not because i was getting limp mode because of it,but because i hate the thought of it not being able to breathe so well,hatch back manual's manage with out them

    I removed the insides of the dpf to my last cdti,and while on the way to work one night i noticed a bit of smoke,pulled into the works car park and thought i have fu - knackered my car,i parked up and switched it off
    Went back out later on,for it to smoke a lot again,so much so that the 100 foot square car park was smothered in smoke
    It was then i realised it must be doing a regen,which it was,as it cleared after a while
