Do parts tend to wear away a lot quicker
Do u fail your MOT because of the emittions
No. Last MOT mine was about a quarter of the level required to fail
You'll see a bit of smoke after chuffing round town for extended periods, and under very hard acceleration, otherwise not. Ironically the harder i drive mine, generally the less smoke I see. All cars are different though, and if your car smokes badly after a remap, then you probably have other underlying issues which would have caused your DPF to block up anyway. The remappers generally regarded as the more ecpensive ones will probably be able to help more with this than the cheaper ones.
Has anyone had their DPF removed and regretted it?...
Unlikely I would have even kept the car if I hadn't had it done. Highly recommended.
£700 are u kidding me?! That's more than I'd imagined...
Will a trip to say London clear a DPF out?
You can get it done cheaper than that if you do some digging on here. No doubt this will cause a row
A trip to London will certainly help, but a DPF is ultimately a wearing part. A bit like a battery - cycle it enough times in the wrong way, and ultimately it will become ineffective.
It'll cost you about an extra 50 quid a year in insurance if you declare it.
Your mpg will improve by about 3 to 4 mpg.
Drive with a heavy right foot (especially from low revs) and you'll slag the clutch within 5000 miles. Drive with a modicum of commonsense and you won't. Having said that, who knows how the previous owner drove the car??
Can't think of anything else. Best of luck making a decision
