Thank-you.

I did once yes when the oil had over a 1lt of diesel in it. I always check the oil after a DPF sensor issue if the level is ok and there is no smell of diesel then I wait till service.

Wonder that will show up then if DPF removed.

Which issues did they have after a remap?

I'm also thinking about remap and I'm afraid of DPF problems.

Must admit that they were quite comfortable seats & I am glad that that they have been retrofitted in such a short space of time, never had any problems with heated seats turning off & at least they have found a good home.

Well the time came where my battery was starting to die.

So I got a new one for £114.
