What's that noise

Some of you on here will note from my other posts that I'm a little disappointed with the performance and MPG of my new 2.4Ti and was enquiring about remaps etc.
Well last night after a mixture of spirited driving and motorway cruising whilst driving steady the car seemed to stutter then a plume of smoke out the rear. Suddenly the car is transformed almost like a remap she pulls so much better and MPG is up too albeit early days yet.
Now I guess this is the result of the DPF regenerating itself, and the car has probably been suffering the consequences of loads of short little journeys at the dealers I bought it from.
I'd welcome thoughts on this to set my mind at ease!
It has however finally made my mind up that the damn DPF is going as if it makes this much difference on a regen what's it gonna be like with it removed totally and remapped???
Back in the fold !
