    Default 10k service intervals for DPF...do I have one?

    According to VX website the new 10,000/1yr service intervals for the 1.9cdti only apply to cars fitted with a DPF. I had emailed VX to check whether mine had a DPF or not. Just got in from work and had a message from some woman with a well dodgy accent saying that this was in relation to..."your query regarding your Varctra". I am presuming she meant to say Vectra....but anyway what I think she said is as follows.
    If on the VIN plate there is number between 1 and 130 then the car does NOT have a DPF.
    If there is a number 0.50 then it DOES have a DPF.
    Well have been oot with me torch and I have z157 and 1.20 written inside a box. I am presuming that I do not have the dreaded DPF then. Can anyone on here inform me in a way i can actually understand??

    If you look underneath your car you will see a box/filter half way along the exhaust pipe.
    I think that is your DPF. It filters al the crap emisions and can sometimes become clogged up causing your engine management light to come on.

    My car is a facelift 2006 CDTI 150 SRI with a DPF and has a service interval of 20K.

    Hope this helps.

    From what I understand if you DO have a DPF then the intervals are the new 10,000 mls mate. If there is no DPF then every 20,000 mls. I am concerned because if I did have to service every 10,000 then that would mean about every 6 months for me

    Yours, being a hatch/saloon I assume?, will only have a DPF in a 1.9 if it's an auto.

    Andrew - I'm sure the service schedule for a DPF fitted car was revised from 20K to 10K? It may have come saying 20K, but I'm sure it changed?
