So you have a dpf issue... Would you consider removing it all together?

does sound good, I did see the smoke as he booted it though. Not forgetting that P 5UML's car is a 325d with a remap and mine is a 335d with a remap. I think my car would eject even more smoke when booted. the vids I've seen back this up.

I don't want to diss this option, its personal preference. Think the snob in me needs a kickin!!

definitely does! Releaseing some easy power from DPF removal is aweosme!

And everytime you accelerate hard, you will be pulling off a magic trick...

Now you see me PSHHHHHHHH Now you dont ;0

You mite not find that actually. Due to the twin turbos on the 335d it has a linear boost which should result in less soot in one puff. Insteadnit will be mildly sooty for alightly longer which you wont notice.

My 535d had a full decat dpf delete and exhaust. Sounded like a V8 somehow and didnt smoke at all really.

hahaha thanks for the comments BM and Gaza,

RS - its definitely personal preference, i was in your position and getting the DPF replaced was just out of the question when i found out the price!

but the sound and performance makes up for it for me...of course id prefer it to not smoke...but i cant have everything lol! one of the downpoints of having a diesel over the petrol

but if you do have it removed...how much are you going to be looking out for it when you boot it?

thats the question lol

all the smoke is people running maxi tune (incl. me).. get the ecotune map.. 330 bhp .. no smoke ( although it does smell a bit .. but then so do stagecoach busses)

I want max power and no smoke though, I want everything and don't want to pay for it either. Think I'm going to try the aftermarket DPF route and see how that goes.
