    Hi Folks,
    Just registered with this excellent site mainly for some feedback on a problem I have at the momment with my 2004 525d E61.
    I have viewed this forum a few days back and my lack of power or should I say limited revs to around 2500rpm points the finger at the Diesel Particle Filter.
    Can this be the only reason for this lack of power?
    The car has covered 150k and there is no lights to show there's a problem.
    It is also intermitent. I can get in it now and i'll bet it will rev right up to the red line.
    I rang BMW today and they will put it on their machine.
    1st half hour free and then £109 and hour!!!!
    Can anyone give me their views on this please!
    Maybe you have had the same trouble!
    Thanks in antisipation
    Nige

    Hello welcome.

    Your best starting a new thread here http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f15/ will get much more views by people with experience on your car

    If it where an e46 330d I could help, but I don't have the knowledge on dervs fitted with DPF's to comment too much yet.

    As mentioned your best bet is to post up a thread in the technical section.
