Any updates on this? I want to remove my DPF but do not want to remove/ship the ECU. No reply from Ecotune.

Any shops in the US do this yet for the 335D? I see quite a few VW TDI places but nothing specific for the 35D.
I've yet to hear of anyone in the states successfully remove the DPF "without" having to ship out the ECU for a bench flash. ECUPROGRAM out of Calgary (poc Miguel) and JR Auto Electronics out of Oakville, Canada (poc Jarek), are two reputable shops that can remove/bypass your DPF and re-map your ECU onsite... Good thing about the Canadian shops is that the US spec 335D and the Canadian spec both fall under the North America build, versus the European build (DPF is slightly different due to lack of DEF injection) that Ecotune out of Scotland deals mostly with. I know Stan at Ecotune says he's been successful in tuning our US models, but just depends on your level of comfort/trust.
