Question DPF Removal ??

Ok my car now has the dreaded DPF error showing up.

I have tried a good run, ie 30-40 miles at 70 ish mph, in 5th gear twice now.

It has not cleared the fault, I also took it out for a good, high revving thrashing to no effect.

The car is 100k+ mileage wise (probably at the end of the DPF's life?), and is not under warranty at all.

I am thinking of taking the opportunity to have it removed, and recoded.

Has anyone any experience of this, and if this is a good move or not ?

I am thinking of taking it to Top Gear - Bridport to get the job done.

Car is a 330d E90, 2006.

If you have any comments on this it would be most appreciated, as I know this is quite a major change, but as its high mileage, not under warranty I do not really mind if its a safe move.
