Default remove fap/dpf help please

I have been quoted 400 to remove the particle filter and remap on my car as the particle filter light is on. The filter has been cleaned i have discovered the eolys fluid is very low and i have been quoted by Peugoet 250 4litres to refill supply only. Then i would need to have the light turned off by diagnostics. trying to figure out what is the best course of action.Is it best to remove it and pay the extra? do you think this is a good price? can any one personally recommend someone Birmingham area? I have a mechanic who i use but im not sure if they have done this before. im hoping for the light to go off after all of this!

Betty.... restrain yourself

It cost me half of what you have been quoted to have the tank refilled and counters reset etc, and that was a Peugeot dealer too..... so your Peugeot dealer is taking the Michael!

Ask them for a breakdown of the quote.... I'll find my quote and we'll see just where they are ripping you off.

EDIT: invoice attached for mine... 140.88 incl. VAT

They obviously make their money somehow.... but not too much with me though. They won't change parts for the sake of it, not if they aren't 100% sure it will do the job.... wouldn't even change the EGR valve when I had problems as they couldn't guarantee it was the root cause, and I've read how so many garages would change it without thinking twice.

Hopefully, I've got a reasonable dealer to work with

Default hi

the quote from peugeot was just for 4 litres of Eolys fluid.Supply only.The quote for 400 to remove the dpf? (is it?) privately from a mechanic who does this.

Be careful about getting your dpf removed as i had mine done but it keeps regenerating due to existing faults. I was told after the fact by the dpf remover that they shouldnt of done the car with its existing issues which sort of defeats the point as dpf removal is supposed to get rid of those issues. My car has no issues btw, they just couldnt do the job properly

Saying that though, my car does drive a lot better now, just once a week has a day of annoying regens then gone again for a week. Oh and i had mine remapped too
