    Quick one guys, how do I check my actual and calculated soot levels using VCDS? Tried searching with no joy!
    I know it is under engine module but not sure how to actually find it? I believe it also tells you mins/hrs since last regen.

    All help appreciated.

    Cheers

    Danny

    Cheers for that fella, yeah I checked that but the percentage was under lamba reading, is this correct?
    Sure I have seen somewhere that it tells you actual soot level and calculated soot level? Or am I going crazy!!
    Also do you know how to adapt the new DPF sensor?

    Thanks

    On my 57 plate A3 170 its under block 70 and 75 and yes lambda % is the correct term; well on mine anyway. i think the terminology changes based upon year and the engine fitted?

    Pushing out 200bhp and racking up the miles lately. How's yours running? You still getting silly MPG??
    Would have thought it would be plug and play?

    Just got the above results, was expecting to see a much higher Lambda % as the fuel consumption is poor given it's 70% motorway, only getting about 430 miles for a full tank(07 2.0tdi 170 DSG S line sport back


    Part of me is hoping that replacing the G450 DPF sensor will help Mpg?

    Update your VCDS to the newest version and rescan.

    Maybe start a new thread too? ;)
