BMW Diesel Particulate Filter Removal

DPF Removal, DPF Delete and Performance Remap

Power Increase: 42Bhp
Torque Increase: 90Nm


The owner of this BMW 530D had a replacement DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) fitted at BMW Dealers at a cost of approximately £1800 only 13 months ago. The blocked DPF was causing substantial power loss and was impacting fuel economy drastically.   Unwilling to spend a further £1800 on a replacement DPF, the owner contacted us for our DPF Removal Service.  As always we carried out  full diagnostics which confirmed the DPF was blocked also there were faults with the EGR.  We removed the DPF, blanked off the EGR and reprogrammed the ECU (DPF Delete & EGR Delete).  We also remapped the vehicle to give approx an extra 42 Bhp and make it approx 15% more fuel efficient.

EGR Faults are quite common as was the case with this vehicle, however we can also safely remove the EGR operation from the vehicle permanently.

We can carry out our DPF Removal Service on all BMW’s, including BMW 118D, BMW 120D,  BMW 320D,  BMW 535D, BMW 730D. Here are some of th cars we have worked on:

A3DPFThis Audi A3 come to us with the typical DPF problems. The DPF, engine management and glow plug lights were on. The car was also in limp mode which made it nearly impossible to drive and continued driving could have caused other major problems.

We carried out a full diagnostics which confirmed the DPF was 80% blocked.  The next course of action was to physically remove the DPF from the exhaust system and reprogramme the ECU to disable the DPF functions as they are no longer required.   As with all DPF Removal’s we only remove the filter from within the  casing which holds the DPF.  Prior to reprogramming the ECU we used our dealer level diagnostics tool to erase all the fault codes and reset all the DPF counters.  We also remapped the car to increase power/performance by 40Bhp and make it more fuel efficient with approximate fuel savings of 10%.  The remap is offered for free as part of the DPF Removal Service.

All our DPF Removal services come with a lifetime warranty and insurance backed guarantee.


DPF Removal is available on all the Audi range, including Audi A1, Audi A2, Audi A3, Audi A4, Audi A5, Audi A6, Audi A7 and Audi A8.
