    All the talk of the not so mythical DPF has got me wondering what it looks like exactly and where it is located in the car?

    Can anyone help?:wacko:

    AS far as I can see from the diagrams I have, it sits directly after the turbo. After this, the exhaust pipes go under the car to the regular silencers etc. It has several temperature senders attached, plus the lamda probe, plus a connection to the exhaust gas recirculation system. So to take a look, pull off the top engine cover and look for the exhaust manifold and then the turbo. Directly after that should be the DPF box in all its glory. Good luck.:yes:

    Here is a page from the ETKA parts catalogue showing the exhaust for my A3 Sportback 2.0TDI-170 with the DPF.
