    No DPF on A3 140 TDi upto 08?

    Hi guys,

    Just checking, but I believe I am correct in saying the PD 140 bhp did not have a dpf on them? until they changed to the CR?

    Cheers

    Correct (unless for some unknown reason a previous owner had one fitted as optional extra ) !!!!!

    No DPF on A3 140 TDi upto 08?

    Check your option codes - if you see 7GN you don't have a DPF fitted.

    At the time of introduction it was supposed to be and regardless of the difference between the 2 tax brackets its pennies compared to the amount of cash needed when it goes wrong. I know there are people out there that rant and rave about how good it is and they've never experienced any DPF problems but DPF deletes are probably my main line of business at the minute as owers are fed up with constant failed regens, bocked cannister etc etc so a DPF delete is the way forward IMO.

    Not sure what's going on but the tax on my 2005 reg. 140 sportback that runs out at end of November this year was £130.

    Just checked the government website and it tells me that renewal will be £170 !

    Didn't think it would go up by that much !

    That seems to check out with latest info.

    Just shows that a 170 CR DSG costs less than a 140 manual PD in road tax in 2012/13.

    Think I need to ditch my 2006 PD 140 sportback and get something newer ( and obviously ) much better !!

    Yeah I'm thinking along the same lines... My car is £270 a year to tax.
