Thanks for your concern, but if you read some of the other threads, particularly regarding the DPF, I`m sure you will realise that I am fully aware of the "consequences" of changing the Makers Spec. I don`t intend to have any kind of Re-Map to the ECU carried out, which is why I am asking for a Bespoke Tuning Box, which can be fitted, and removed again as and when deemed necessary, and also leaves no trace at all of it`s fitment once removed, which is a very simple 5 minute process.
Also, regarding "driving the car as the Manufacturer states", the advice given to me by my Motability Rep when collecting my car, was "give it a run up the Motorway once a week, and you will be ok". This is clearly not the case, particularly in respect of the Current Euro 5 Reg`s for DPF`s, so Vauxhall, and all other manufacturers for that matter, need to ensure that Diesel Vehicles are neither Sold or Leased, to anyone doing a low, and/or mostly Urban mileage, as it`s just asking for trouble.Edited by: Isaac Hunt
