I should have stayed away and just kept driving my car ;-)

Now I've started reading about turbo waste gates and how they can fail.

On the N47 (yes, not my engine) they talk about a design problem with the waste gate failing partially open
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_N47#Other_Issues

Is it possible the turbo wastegate is partially open - and creating excess soot? thus quickly filling up the DPF? any easy ways to check/diagnose?

any help/pointers appreciated
