the problem is when theres soot in the tail pipe its also getting in the low pressure egr. so thats an abrasive getting all the way thru your intake track, including your turbo intercooler and all piping.

There are just too many to list....
ANY soot in the tailpipe of a CJAA is "excessive".

It should be "white glove" clean:



And not like this one:



I know the difference may seem subtle, but that's all it takes.

Has nothing to do with fuel quality.

Well, that’s different. Thanks. I thought mine was doing well compared to the 2011 Golf I had at the same mileage.

My question about the fuel quality was about the increased incidence that you’ve seen them coming in for DPF work or if you thought that they are just coming into that mileage range.

Thanks
