    hi guys,

    had my dpf removed few months ago but noticed the smell of the car is pretty bad now that i open the windows due to summer months.

    i know the guy said the 2009 model does not have a cat convertor as standard as they replaced this with a dpf then in 2010 they put in both.

    does this mean the gas is very dangerious for my health as no cat?

    thanks
