DPF probs

The DPF light comes on after about 10 minutes of driving on my 330d. I've had both thermostats replaced (the water temp was running at about 70c now its 90c) but it still won't regenerate. My beemer specialist garage has tried to force regenerate but it won't. The mileage is 116,00. I read somewhere that all the glow plugs need to be operational for a regen to work - is this true as a scan revealed that most have failed.

There's no way I'm paying 1200 just for a new part so I'm looking at DPF delete options. Can anyone recommend anyone in the south west? I'm guessing that the smell is a problem reading previous posts - will a downpipe sort this out?

The car is already mapped by emaps.

Cheers!

Had mine recently done and I noticed a few things were different 1, engine was slightly louder 2,smell definitely more stronger and smokier (usually only when first starting cold and WOT) 3,turbo whistle could be herd whilst driving slowly, I was a bit put off at first but i'm used to it now, on a plus side the car feels so much puncher now, I also had de cat and egr delete at the same time, glad now its been done just as long as the mot passes and doesnt change where I have to undo all that hard work. p.s. downpipe might help with sound as it's not resonating but wont stop smoke or smell.

ok update...

Had all 6 glowplugs replaced. Also the control unit (covered in oil).

DPF light has gone out. and stays out.

It would seem working glowplugs needed for regen but not sure how many...

Cheers
