    I did a gentle 15 mile drive today on mostly B roads, and when I got home and stopped the engine, the cooling fan was on and there was a hot smell from the car.
    The temp guage was normal and as was everything else as far as I could see. Could this be a DPF regen cycle, as my wife has been using the car for the last week on mostly short journeys ?

    Yeah most likely. You would probably a notice a nice whiff of burning rubber as well...it isnt the tyres, its the smell of the soot burning off. Mine seems to do it randomly as well, and you can feel the heat belting from the car.

    Sounds like it was regenerating.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
