What was the date/mileage of the emissions modification? The 4/48k above was supposed to say "after emissions modification," sorry. I'll edit.Thanks for responding. Yes, the car has been modified and the warranty expires July 1 which is the greater of (a) 10 years since the inservice date. I verified that with Volkswagen of America. How do I avoid interrupting a regen? I don't know that a regen is happening when I'm driving - I just hear the fan after I shut off the engine.
Most owners interrupt a regen by driving lots of short trips, since there also many "stops" which interrupt the process. This type fo driving may also increase the frequency of regens, which increases the chances of interrupting one. Many owners don't care about it, but I try to let a regen finish, or at least let the temps drop before turning the engine off, but the most reliable way to do this is by monitoring the system.
I monitor regens by using the VAG DPF app ($3?) via a $25 Carista-branded OBD reader (the cheaper ones are less reliable) and an android phone I bought on ebay for $25. For a wider audience, yous should post in the Mk6 forum, as many of the Mk6 owners won't see your post in this one.

After just having my DPF replaced, luckily under warranty (74K miles) I am now paranoid that this will happen again, maybe even sooner than the first one... My commute to work is about 30 miles one way, then I drive to lunch about 3 miles round trip, then back home after work another 30 miles...
I have searched and read may threads regarding DPF regeneration but have not found answers to the following questions (but they are probably there). From what I have read, DPF regen frequency varies but when one does occurs how long do they typically last (several seconds/minutes)? If a regen...
Hi, I've an Golf TDi 2015. I'm using vag dpf pro on android to monitor the dpf. Have few question about it. I notice the regen never occur before 100% of soot loading. Why? Noticed too, when a regen occur, it drop about to 23% before the regen stop. Why again? Why don't burn to 0? Last one...
