    Not quite in your area, but there's someone in Ross On Wye that sticks in my head from this or other forums who does it. Have a look around...
    Could be in Hay even. Just got a mental bookmark in case I ever need it done, but as I've never even had the light on yet, I could be waiting another 50,000 miles (touch wood).

    Hi, I had some DPF trouble which was initially down to a fault differential pressure sensor. This solved the issue but every time I would be in traffic it would come back on. Since then I had to replace the camshaft and remove the head, so far it's never come on.

    in any case, you need to get your car on vagcom and see what the differential pressure is across the DPF, if allowable do a forced regen, see link below

    RS tuning in Leeds can do it or if you can travel South to Nottingham there is a guy I used that did a great job, I ended up by passing my dpf after it became clogged up as a replacement was too much money, so had a pipe made a got that and the egr valve mapped out

    Doesn't a DPF delete mean black smoke when pressing the loud pedal?

    How are you going about getting your EGR cleaned? I'm considering doing mine just before I get it deleted (software only). Won't be getting a remap as mine is a manual.
