Problem is a new DPF costs £1297 as a part alone.
For around £600, I can get it removed with a stainless steel hand made pipe added where the DPF was, mapped to tell the ECU its removed and a performance map.
I just want to make sure its a safe option really, as I don't want any future Turbo issues.
I know when the fault shows up its around 70% blocked, so I have a little time, and as its not regenerating / high mileage, is probably due a new one.
Have searched around but can not really find any "reviews" of how people have found it once done. Plenty of companies that do it, but no customer reviews.
