I wasn't aware of these type. At least that's some expense saved. Now all we need is a DPF which lasts the lifetime of the car hahahahahaha.

My God what a !Removed! joke this dreaded dpf system is. I got rid of my last car(focus) because of this very thing. If you don't do much motorway mileage I recommend 15 to 20 mins run getting the revs at around 3000 to 3500 revs. This is because it has to get hot enough to force a regeneration. I did this with the Focus and the car ran perfect afterwards. Do this at least once a month to keep the filter clear.
You think thats bad. My car went into limp mode due to a blocked dpf and I had done 600 miles previously on the motorway. THREE different garages said to me that in 5th gear and doing 2200 revs is not going to get it hot enough or cause a regeneration. I stuck it into 4th gear and kept revs high and it worked a treat.

Well fortunately the Mrs stumped up the cash and a friend has recommended a mechanic from a local dealers who does work on the side. So to cut costs in future I will get the parts as cheap as possible and get him to do the labour.

They had this up and running in Croatia about 7 years ago when I hired a car there for 3 days.
