thanks for the reply jee, thats lifted a weight of my back worrying about a replacment.

anyways back to topic they seem genuine to me, the only way is to take the plunge. in the end of the day if it doesnt work they have the legal right to put it back to factory for you...or so you would like to think etc.

the price is relatively cheap from what i have seen considering the work, parts and equipment needed.

especially the remap that you no doubtly get, needs a rolling road etc.

Does sound good, I did send another email asking about what guarantees are offered, I asked the below and will happily post the response if/when I get one!

1) What "Guarantee" is offered with this to confirm that the MOT will still be passed / no engine damage will occur from the removal?
2) Will there be any re-percussions with this removal (I.e engine efficiency / exhaust tone / performance?) will the vehicle appear modified in any way that may affect my insurance?
3) What location are you based in, as I am based in Medway, Kent?
4) As the DPF may have another 9,000 miles lifetime left, I am presuming that the offer will most likely have expired by that time?
5) What is the turnaround time for completion of this project?

My latest response from the company...

We offer a 2yr parts warranty and guarantee with our service the MOT will not be effected. There can be no damage to the engine as we are not installing a blockage, but instead removing a problem completely from a vehicle.

The performance of the engine will be increased and so will the life expectancy as there is reduced backpressure meaning the engine/turbo doesn't have to work as hard as before to produce the same amount of power. This can increase fuel efficiency and power.

We're in South-East London (Greenwich) and offer a free collect & return service in Medway, Kent. It will not appear modified because there is a heatshield covering the DPF box.

Our special offers expire without prior notice but this is the best price we've offered yet and I would be happy to hold this price for you until the end of next week (guaranteed).

Turn around time is one day.

For bookings & more information, please call us on 0871 2887 666 or if you can respond with a contact number, a member of our team will call you back.

Sorry for the delay guys, the standard cost without this offer is 750. still cheaper than getting ford to replace at 1000 and then maintain at 130 a shot for the eolys fluid...

makes you wonder why the manufacturers dont just do away with them altogether really mind you they make money for nowt really i have to be honest with so many new petrols on the market and really good mpg i dont think ide have a diesel again unless i was doing big miles strangely i know of a lot of diesels for sale all due to the above issue

does this gaurantee cover you if vosa pull you over if its an emission thing then it would be interesting to know where you would stand ive seen them inspecting cars and vans that run on diesel and they are very thorough its unlikely it would happen but still up my way they pull a lot of diesels looking for red or other stuff when they dont find it they start inspecting everything saw a guy that passed his mot 2 days before and vosa failed the car there and then on summat stupid

If a Ford dealer sees the dpf has been worked on and notices ecu mods could they not refuse to work on your car or are the mods undetectable?

artscot - apparently with the dpf removal and a good remap the emmisions dont really change that much. i know what you mean, in summer months, when everyone comes to whitby vosa set up a roadside MOT station here at Fylingdales and pull random cars in for an on the spot MOT etc.

jig - i would say it will only be noticeable if the dealer decided to take of the cat (where it shares it location). as for noticing it on programing...i have never come across a mechanic, that claims to be a electronic technician, any good at computers. that and i beleive the remap is within the ECU as code, so it is undetecable...the only thing i will say tho is that make sure where you take it puts the new and old map on a backup cd for you. i say this because if ford run a software/firmware update on you car it may very well erase this data...then obviously your car will throw a massive wobbly. tbh if the dealer says im not touching that because of this and that, i will retort with "well your loss of money then" and find a different garage.

LOL, its all ammusing, the only thing they would be disappointed by is the fact that they dont have to do the eolys fluid topups, If the car is out of warranty, I dont see why they should refuse to do it. To be honest, if I get the DPF removed it will only be until I can afford to get the petrol...

Looking around there are a few places around Kent who could do the same thing, if anyone is interested, I have spoken to kauto.co.uk and ecu-rs.com who can offer this service for between 300 and 500! if I cant switch the car, I am definately getting the damned filter removed...
