Just thought I'd say hello! Just purchased a mini cooper D 57 plate as a bit of a runaround for the Mrs. So will be posting a few faults and hoping for a bit of help in the next week or so. :thumbup:

Give her a service and a good blast down the motorway and get her nice and hot, try to clear the dpf filter. Lower gear higher revs :). If not you'll have to get a forced re gen done on it.

Will do! Any links to 150,000 service any where on here and what to do/replace? Would I be able to carry this out myself instead of being forced to pay through the nose and at least if I am able to do it myself I know it will have been done and properly! :)

I'm not sure about what's on here myself at the moment. I'm new to the forum myself but I'm sure one of the other member will be able to point you in the right direction.

As far as I'm aware a good long blast keeping the revs relatively high should clear it unless it's too far gone in which case you will have to get it forced by a garage.
