    Hello everyone has anyone put a after market dpf on a Audi Q7 has the cost of a new one from Audi is £1570 pounds and rather expensive, and buying one from eBay is £200 with 2 years guarantee????
    Replies on this would be rather welcome has anyone fitted them and had any problems, because buying one from eBay every 2 years would be more cost effective than buying 1 from Audi.

    I fitted a few aftermarket DPF’s in the early days from various manufacturers, all failed and we ended up finding good used units which is a rare example of me using second hand parts.
    A petition has been started to allow the use of synthetic fuels when they become available, this may allow the continued sale of ICE vehicles post 2030 and the use of classic vehicles well into the future… Their use may even be able to rival electric vehicles given the chance. Please sign this petition IF you feel the infernal combustion has a future if sustainable fuels are made available

    I try to do all my work myself as Audi wanted £4600 for dpf and cat replacement and just can’t justify that price tag, if I got the dpf off with out snapping anything I would of cleaned it my self and put it back on and learned how to use Vcds for the other bits needed doing.

    I don’t feel you can clean it yourself without the specialist equipment or I would do, we use DPF Clean Team who are excellent people.
