    No, no, no, no, no - you forgot the cheese.
    surely it's "lightly toasted luxury slice white Boule with the finest haricot beans in a smooth rich tomato sauce topped with a melange of hand made , perfectly aged artisan cheeses" :grin: /FTFY
    More importantly, go go RF! Props to you fella, I haven't heard of any other people I 'know' submitting to Thermaltake, just saying

    Your statement would suggest that RGB makes things better. I am disappoint.

    Indeed - like garlic, baked beans is a very social food - it likes to make it's presence known, after the fact.

    Cheese serves to increase the volume, as it were.

    Thanks for the well-wishes re the mod competition entry... hopefully they like beans on toast ;) .

    Call it 'slow cooked haricot beans in a flavourful tomato broth atop a lightly toasted crouton' all you like, it's still beans on toast...

    ...unless it's tomato and bean soup with croutons in...

    Dad has ripped his tracheostomy out which he needs for his double bypass and is now refusing to have it put back in.

    So I was banned from entering the ThermalTake competition :(. Maybe I'll do the mod as something separate instead.

    Apparently a staff member winning an official competition "wouldn't look very good" so I was banned.
    Ahh yes, Project "Way over my head"

    DPF Filter FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.
    I changed cars 6 weeks ago to a newer diesel with DPF ['61 Honda CRV] and was assured that it would be fine round town with out of town runs a few times a month.
    10 days in DPF warning light came on (not prompt to regen, which it will do...) , so back to the garage and a forced regen via OBD, all good until 2 weeks later and it did it again.
    Specialist came out and read the OBD and said there was no ash build up that he could see and did a forced regen to clear the warning.
    That was last Monday, F****ing thing came on tonight - Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhhhhh! It may have been fine if I'd gone on the motorway on Sunday, but the trip was cancelled due to bad weather.
    Fed up with this; it was my one big worry with a modern diesel, and was going to test drive a petrol one too, but was persuaded to take this lovely (in every other respect) great spec clean and well cared for car.
    I feel really childish and would like to push it off a cliff into the sea

    So is the problem with the filter or with the sensor?

    Good question, OBD didn't show any sensor problems; but I don't know if what's happening is normal as I have only driven round town and not taken it on the dusk carriageway. I did think a run to London after the 1st regen would keep it clear.
    Maybe it is a sensor fault

    Whilst I normally cringe whenever someone brings it up, this sounds like a perfect moment to trot the old 'this is not fit for purpose,' line as you hand the car back to the numpty who sold it to you.

    Same warning light three times in a month, you've been sold a pup.
