    not sure its an option in INPA but DIS which uses INPA for its core...i think INPA itself is a little too early for DPF test and diags functions...

    ya really should be investigating deeper if ya having the need to force a regen on a laptop if the car is failing to regen or maybe question where ya driving it? cos if ya doin the forced regen cos ya not acheiving the criteria for the car to regen itself, ya gonna cause issues and sooting and carboning problems of the engine eventually, it has to be run on open roads and motorways regular...

    Should have bought a petrol!

    I think you can force a regen in DIS but like doggy says, if it needs to regen it will do by itself unless you have an issue with engine temps or glow plugs.

    Thanks for the advice, doggy. Indeed I drive most of time in town these days. The BMW dealer asks me to take a good and hard run on the motor way once a month and I'll continue doing so. Meanwhile I plan to get DIS working asap to at least have some transparency on whether the regen happened or not.

    Yes, streetos. I did think about replacing it with a petrol one. There was a glow plug issue weeks ago so there's no regen happened automatically. Sent to the dealer and have all six plugs replaced. I'll give DIS a try before committing to sell. I really like my 330D indeed.

    For me I stear well clear of modern diesels cars. The days are gone for reliability. Years ago the only electrics were, alternator, starter motor. and an electro magnet to turn the fuel off.

    I gave up with DIS, I did have it working at one time after getting a BMtechnics cable and software but last time I tried to use it it wouldn't connect and I can't be arsed faffing about with it any more. I've now got the Torque app on my phone which, together with a bluetooth OBD reader, lets me monitor boost and engine temperature, among lots of other things. Enables you to see when it's regenning as boost drops to zero or lower with the throttle valve closing, and coolant temp goes up.
