Drive a couple of hours on some good roads to a nice hotel, have a nice meal, do some sightseeing. Maybe go abroad. Spend £200-300 on each trip and after a year re-evaluate whether you'd have been better off swapping your SD for a £7k 'loss' and staying at home
My take on this is that some DPFs are manufactured faulty. Comparing my driving to the OP, I should be having trouble with my DPF and you probably shouldn't. That applies to others who have had trouble as well. The DPFs are made in such a way to trap soot and I suspect some of them don't have enough patent channels to allow free flowing of exhaust through the filter. So a minimal amount of soot loading causes trouble. Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree here, but some owners do seem to have a disproportionate amount of trouble.
