    Possibly, but most were deactivated at the dealers as idiots would take them back thinking it was a fault. best way to tell is to look at the instant fuel usage.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Sounds like a regen to me. As you know, let it finish. Get him to check the instant fuel consumption as if its in a regen then it will be using over 1gal an hour stood still on tickover.

    Then get him to google about dpf's and to read his owners manual

    They are downloadable, plus its probably in your manual too, although they maybe engine specific - not sure.

    No not all, it's an emissions control device. More and more new ones do though, it's to remove those big black clouds of crap coming out if them.
