    Default 3.0 cdti dpf or not?

    A friend is looking at a 56 plate elite hatch 3.0 v6 cdti manual (z30dt). Now will it have a dpf as it's not an auto/estate/signum?

    Cheers

    A mate from Germany has recently removed the DPF from his Vectra Z30DT (hatch). Could be different in the UK.

    All Z30DT have DPF as far as I am aware (one of the reasons why I went for a slightly older Vectra C)
    On the Y30DT it was just the estate

    Do you know if he just removed it (and it's still going through regen cycles), or has he managed to stop it regenning?

    At some point, I will have to replace the exhaust, as the back boxes are starting to corrode (not blowing yet, but...) and my tail pipes are sooty - they were always 'new metal' clean, so I think the DPF has started to disintegrate.

    I don't have a problem with having a DPF and regens if it is doing some good... but if I'm throwing half a gallon of diesel in the bin every 300 miles to clean a broken filter... seems a bit pointless to keep it

    I don't get any visible smoke at all, so reckon I should be good for the emissions test without a DPF - besides, there are plenty of Euro4 1.9s without DPFs and they only measure smoke opacity... Sorry, not rubbing it in with your smoking Y30 issues, maybe you should have bought a trailer and dragged a thousand litres of diesel back from Germany on your way home, mate

    Think the PR is referring to the 2006 onwards 3.0 V6 CDTI, and not all engines

    @Hebblemarine,
    Elite remaps in Leeds may be able to code the DPF out, I asked around on some of the mapping forums and was told to try them. They should be able to do the EGR also.

    Yep, all Z30DT based cars will have the DPF as standard.
