Does anyone know what SW / HW configuration I would need to read when the last successful DPF "cycle" occured? I do have a bluetooth based ELM327 (might be a 1.0 clone), but I've not got any SW for it yet.
I am planning to do pretty much all the maintenance myself on the vehicle, so being able to read and reset fault codes would be useful for when something does go wrong.
The vehicle is a late 2007 (LCI) 535d tourer, and I also have a 2008 520d tourer which I'd like to be able to use the same diagnostic equipment with, if at all possible to save on costs.
Any suggrestions or pointers would be much appreciated.
By the way, the reason I'm interested in the DPF in particular is that both cars are being used mainly for short journeys of 10 - 15 minutes or so, which I understand is not ideal as the DPF's don't get chance to burn off frequently. Now and again we go on longer journeys, but I'd like to actually be able to confirm how long it's been since the last "burn off".
