    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hello, Just did my bi-monthly INPA/DIS check and noticed I've got a DDE Error: 4166 Particle Filter System. DIS refers to it as a back-pressure sensor on the DPF. I'm guessing the DPF is clogged? I've seen an option in DIS to actively force the re-generation then and there, has anyone tried...

    I've been reading a lot about people having trouble with the DPF and since my car has 118000 miles on it, I'm getting a bit worried. I would have thought the cheapest fix if it gets blocked would be to take it off and take a big drill to the innards, getting rid of as much of the filter as...
