Has my car got a dpf?

Mar 28, 2019
Hi was wondering if my 2009 mk2 Leon has a dpf. It’s a 1.9 tdi?
Want to get the car straight piped would it be a good idea or would it have dpf problems then?

I think it does. You would need to have the dpf mapped out and may blow a bit of smoke the dpf would otherwise catch.

If it's a BXE engine then no, it shouldn't have the DPF.

Straight through exhausts generally don't tend to sound good on diesel engines though, either inside or outside.
