    afaik it should be fine.

    if it thinks the dpf is blocked it may try for a regen which would waste a tiny amount of fel but otherwise afaik it will be fine

    Get it mapped as soon as you can. It will do periodic regens from what I gather - which I don't think is healthy if there is no DPF present anymore.

    Get software sorted as it may still try and do regen and flood with diesel and kill ur cat. Only obvious prob will be the dash light is on. Depends on age of car get the latest vx software on with improvements instead of remapping old. I had 05 done last year and made a big difference as cdti engine only came out the year before so loads of improvements done.
