We have a new DPF from VW on our site, it's $1,000 after core return. Replacement should be fairly easy since your car will now have a separate DPF and CAT post-fix. So your cost number is a bit high.

Which brings up the questions -
When will the DSG update be fixed?
What is the likelihood a new DPF will crack before:
that runs out?
Using the 54,000 mile figure and the cost of a dealer replaced DPF it reads like I may be paying another $4,000.00 (for DPF alone) for my driving privileges, if it breaks just after warranty runs out. That's almost $0.75/mile! A far greater impact than a small drop in fuel mileage.

no one knows when they will have a solution to the failed DSG software update.

if you have a DSG, the warranty is 48,000 miles after the fix, not 54k.

Your 09 will get a new DPF and EGR filter when you do the fix because the 09 has the DPF welded to parts they need to replace anyway.
