It isn't a legal requirement so why would it have a problem come MOT?

MOT regs changed few months back.

Any vehicle registered after 2008 i believe, must have its original equipment when it comes to emissions and safety...

at least thats what ive been led to believe... please let me know if i'm wrong, but i'm fairly certain

Please do... as i said its only what ive been led to believe, but having a new car and not needing an MOT has meant not needing to ask the questions lol!!

As long as the car appears to have the dpf fitted then that's as far as the tester can go.

The common way is to have the canister emptied and re-welded.

The tester has to assume that the dpf is functional as he can't start ripping it apart.

What's illegal about it? It's a pipe you decided to put a heat shield around to stop it getting too hot for the surrounding parts :P
