    Hi everyone, just looking for some advice. I've put a deposit down on a 2.0d X3 M Sport, it's a 2017 plate and only done 15,000 miles. I know that you can have DPF problems when diesels aren't run regularly on the motorway. Would you steer clear of a low mileage diesel? This one has obviously...

    Hey all. My DPF is full and in fault. It's a very expensive replacement and required here in CA. I'm getting intermittent diesel odor in the cabin. I am broke due to Covid 19 shut down and was wondering if any damage will incur if I keep driving it with the DPF fault. By the way, I have drove...

    I just bought a 2006 E90 320D 163bhp and no one can seem to tell me properly if i have a DPF. the exhaust stick straight out the bumper, not down, and is sooty. So I am assuming that I DO NOT have a DPF. Please can someone tell em which engine i have and if it has the DPF. Im super confused.

    Following on from my earlier thread about my 4501 EGR code, I realised after some research that my car won't regen with an EGR fault, so its been 6 months of driving mostly short journeys with no PDF regen...which I would've thought would cause some issues, except, I don't have any DPF fault...

    Hi. Had issues with DPF several times on car in last few years. Had it changed and also cleaned year or so ago. Just wondering when you clean a filter for dpf / change it , is there any way to see if red deisel has been used in the car, or can that only be done with dip test? Thanks

    Hey guys, My e60 530d 2006 has lost power and gear changing doesnt seem right either. Today I took it to a mechanic and it showed 77 at idle and 277 at 2000rpm pressure. I was told the dpf needs terracleaning plus the car needs a new glow plus and head. Does this so called Terra cleaning work...

    I recently bought a BMW diesel and I'm curious about DPF regeneration, never having had it in a car before.

    Hey. Got the particle filter warning earlier. Checked the temps with the torque app, was around 75 and went to 85 when stationary for a bit. Can't read codes yet as laptop is on the blink. Thinking of filling with diesel and adding a dpf regen additive then going for a spin down the motorway...

    Hi Guys, I know there have been various threads on deleting DPFs etc but I was hoping for some general info on the subject to clear up a bit of confusion on my part. I have been contemplating a DPF delete on my E61 LCi 520d N47 in the interests of seeking better mpg and reducing possible...
