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

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?
