I'm going to Shark Performance tomorrow to have the DPF removed and a remap. It's been with Audi for fours days and the car has come back worse than it went in! I have lost all confidence in them so spending another wad of cash with them isn't an option.
I think they're going to cut open the DPF, remove the contents and weld it back up again. I'll know more tomorrow I guess!
BTW I have an A3 Tdi 170 DPF (well, for the next 10 hours then I guess it'll be an A3 Tdi 210 (no DPF)

i had mine done by richard at rsh performance, he did it including an evolutonchip remap for 720. I have an A4 Tdi quattro and im very happy with it. FYI he said that he takes some buts out of the engine bay and it can be pulled up and out its tight but does come out, lol that sounds rude!
