    Particle filter warning

    Just appeared on my DIS

    Is this something that is covered under a service or does it mean there's a problem with it?

    Do you do alot of short/ low speed journeys?
    If so then you need to regenerate the filter by driving at 50/60 mph for at least 15 mins.

    I do a mix of 5-10min driving with long motorway journeys

    I've got an 80mile motorway trip to make tonight, see if that does anything

    That will do it mate. It just needs a little time to heat up and regenerate
    I had exactly the same thing on my previous A4. No doubt will experience it again on my current A3.
