    Default DPF on automatics

    Hello all...can anyone confirm whether or not all automatics are fitted with a DPF...I have 1.9cdti(150) design auto on 07 plate.

    Was hoping to fit a caterman box, but have heard that thay can fry your DPF if fitted.....

    Thanks.....

    I thought it would have one, but my dealer reckons it won't have one.....Think I'd rather trust the info from this forum.

    Mine deffo has one, cos after a few hundred miles.. you know it's kicked in due to the fact the engine races abit.. and your fuel consumption drops like you've just been kicked in the go-nads!!

    You can sometimes see the fuel gauge move when it kicks in!

    Just to confirm....the supplier of the caterman box (t-tuning) have confirmed that it is not suitable for vehicles fitted with DPF...reply below

    This Box is not for DPF. This is a great Problem for the DPF. Sorry


    Will have to look for something else....

    Cheers
