Default DPF issue Cork...

Hi lads, I have a 08 320d e92 and am getting a DPF error message. Been told by bmw that due to the mileage (140,000 miles) it's probably due to be replaced.

Problem is its 2,500! Damn!!!!!

Anyhow, options are (apparently) to get it cleaned which is about 500e and no guarantee of NCT pass according to them

Or

I've chatted with a few lads and they recommended a bipass pipe,


Any advice welcome, if the bipass pipe is an option, anyone recommend someone around Cork that can make one up and possibly fit?


Thanks

remove and get it cleaned in special machine .not terra clean on the car !!

once it be removed , visually can be seen its condition ,after cleaning they will tell u if it went perfect or something wrong ,im nearly sure all will be ok .

dont need any decats or so on . the worst , u can get second hand part and clean it ,still 3-4 times cheaper as new

Do 4/5 forced regens using Autologic or Rheingold.
Then tell DDE that you replaced it.
Job done.

Takes a good few hours and nearly half tank of fuel

Not at all!!
You can keep them below 100kmh
But it's a bitch with traffic. Sometimes 2-4am is best time to do it

DPF clinic???


Thanks for rhetoric suggestions folks, I'll 100% get it removed and cleaned before even thinking about replacing.

Any suggestions as to where to bring it to get it cleaned properly around Cork?

Dpf clinic is Limerick. Ben O Brien on here runs it so could get in touch with him.
