    Mot.

    Just recently bought a 2005 Renault Clio 1.5dci as a second car. One elderly owner, full service history, only 42,000 miles. It's in very good condition.
    Checking it's mot history it failed last year on. 'Emitting visable smoke from a car fitted with a dpf.'
    It doesn't have a dpf.
    Either the poor guy was conned or the garage was misinformed about the cars details.
    2005 x350 3.0 sovereign in black.

    Either enclosed in a concrete bunker or mounted much higher,at least these higher ones are easier to spot....

    Hmmm...

    Maybe it means "was smoking, now fitted a DPF"!?

    Jimma,

    With all that you have posted in the recent past regarding DPF's being the work of Satan,is this even likely?

    Diamond stone, please!

    And an axe of your choice, bearing in mind it's meant for thick necks!

    I could build up a collection of them?
