Ok So just a quick note.
After a few days of talking the wife roudn i've got our Vectra 1.9cdti 150 booked in with ben at MAS to have the DPF removed and the EGR blanked and a full remap.
Why am i doing this
1: The EGr has over the last few months thrown the EML light up, i've cleaned it and the boost sensor, it didn't take long but with 2 little kids finding the time to do this is bit of a hassle. I've come to the opinion that i've going to need a new EGR valve, i can fit it my self but that will still cost me around £90 for another.
2: DPF removal well it kept trying to regen every other week, (TBH i wasn't aware of the whole issue of DFP's when i bought the car) recently its been blowing smoke out from the front of the car when trying to regen, it went on a long run only 2 weeks ago at a decent speed this was the last straw.
From what i can see a non vaux DPF could cost around £250, im not able to fit this so add this on and we are probably looking at £300 before the vat. Also i could be in the same situation in a year or less since the car isn't always used for long trips.
So the minimum cost for sorting my issues is £390.
Getting MAS Performance to sort my issues out costs £350 all in.
So a £40 saving, tell a slight lie as my car needs servicing anyway in a month or so, so it makes sense to get it done before the remap fresh oil and all that.
this is my journey from DPF hell, if this helps 1 person then i'm happy
