Thank you, haven't had that yet unless it is so little that I don't notice.

How to tell if it's in regen has been discussed ad nauseum (sorry, not trying to be curt). The best way is to use a ScanGaugeII or similar device to monitor exhaust gas temperatures. This thread is very informative: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=360498

My G2 fixed Passat just finished a regeneration in the garage and no obnoxious oders noted.

I've been behind multiple MK6s, Mercedes and BMWs that smelled like they ate asparagus for two days straight while at the beach without drinking a drop of water.

Normally it's not that noticeable, but yeah it's definitely a distinct odor. Not sure if any of those cars were running right as,well, these systems aren't known for their reliability.
