Right well ive been out today and had a good root around under the bonnet i found that the was what seemed to be a bad vac pipe off what i know to be the boost control valve as it looks exactly like the one i have in my TT, its situated by the egr valve and the pipe goes from it to under the egr cooler somewhere, so i cut the bad bit of pipe out as it was long enough and reconnected it back to the boost controller and made sure the ecu fault codes were all clear before i left and went for a good run. After about 10 mins DPF warning light back on the display so checked the fault codes and had a new one P14a1 i cleared it carried on driving and when i got home the code was back.
