    I was at Evans Halshaw the other day asking if my car had a dpf, and he said no it was mainly the 150bhp models that had them fitted. He said that most of the new vectra diesel range now have them, more so the estate.
    Don,t know if he was talking b******s as he didnt do any checks on the system but Im guesing he knows what he's on about

    there are a few threads on this im sure they say its only the estates and autos that have them?? how true that is i dont know? i could have sworn mine had one fitted and mines a 150bhp man, i have a dtuk tuning box on the crd2(9) which has different maps on it, you can change it according to if u have one or not (dpf), i rang dtuk and they told me that map 3 which is what its on is ok for cars with them fitted as it kicks the power in slightly later than normal.

    Estate, Signum and auto hatch/saloon will have a DPF - so with yours being a 2009 estate it will definitely have one.

    As for suitability of any tuning box on a car with a DPF - you may want to have a peek at this post from someone who's had just a bit of experience of tuning.

    Deffo wouldn't put a tuning box on a car with a DPF,no matter what the box manufacturer says.DPF's are expensive and even with an increased duty cycle they can quickly become clogged with unburnt fuel and other crap that a tuning box is likely to produce.Safe bet is to have a remap with a DPF,which unfortunately the facelift estate has.

    Happy tuning!
