thanks again.

I replaced my EGR thermostat ( here's my thread ) but only because the OBC hidden menu was showing my temps at 59'C during average runs.

Replacing this 'stat gave temps of around 78 - 80'C, which was fine for the regen.

I also used a DPF additive, but it didn't work on it's own.

I needed to use the cable to clear the error codes during a run. I had to clear them about 6 or 7 times before they stopped reappearing, and an active regen kicked in (you can tell, if you're looking for it).
