    Ok, I've now come to the conclusion, that one way or another, the DPF has to go on our 05/55 Grand Scenic 130 Dci - I just don't think it will ever work correctly bearing in mind that most of the driving it will do is going to be stop/start urban.. So,I was thinking.. Apparently, the DPF has...
