Hi everyone, Firstly I want to say that this is an excellent forum and I love the feedback and pictures that everyone who is proud of their Audi (PrAudi's - lol) put up here. I have a 56 plate 8P 2.0 TDI 170 Red S-line, which I adore and I do that look back and check out everytime I park it! HOWEVER........... I am getting to the stage now that I fear I may have to get rid of it!!!!!!!! My problem is this. The particle filter keeps on blocking up as I do regular 20-30 min drives to work mostly through sh#~ty traffic. Over the last few months I have had the particle filter light come on about 4 times and this is the 2nd time now that I have to give it to the garage to regenerate as it is in limp home mode due to coil and ecu probs. I know of the 'eco friendly' fix that involves raking the balls off it up and down the motorway for about half an hour but is employing this method on a fairly regular basis the only way I can keep it? I would be really grateful for any help or advice as I cant afford a £150.00 date with the garage every 2 months! Cheers and keep up the good work!
