yours should have started a regen by now ,if the soot load gets too 24mg and onwards then you have a problem. in the uk version soot load of 20/21 starts a regen and also the pressure reading pre and post dpf would control this as well ,engine temp, has too be normal working level ,if you have other related faults then these could stop it doing a regen. if you look at my readouts then that will give you an idea of whats happening,an auto scan will show any faults and mil codes . the fact that you can manualy perform a regen suggests that maybe other faults are not stopping it !!.

Looks like I spoke too soon, after my last drive today it finally did a regen. Weird that the soot went that high, maybe the conditions weren't right on my previous drive.

Never worry about a regen unless you get the DPF icon on the dash.
Once it's there, take it to the highway immediately, it should regen.
If something goes wrong, it will trigger a CEL.
Once you have a CEL, then stop, it's time to worry and investigate things using VCDS. But before that I'd really advise not to try to "tune" some settings.

Don't know if they can tell, but the ecm keeps track of "revision" changes that happen every time you change the software.

Hint: there should be no reason that you have 15 software changes logged.
