    Hi Nicola,

    Welcome along,

    If it is a hatch you will not have to worry about the DPF as the hatch doesn't have one

    The main issues in truth however are the swirl valves, EGR and DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel) as it goes these need watching the closest.

    Look on your Driver's Door VIN Plate, if the bottom left hand corner of the label has 0.50 in a box then it has a Particulate Filter (DPF).

    Mine has 1.20 in a box - therefore no DPF
