Take the car out & BOOT it. If you do a lot of stop start town driving it causes the filter to block up. Take it down the motorway for a good run & with luck it will go out!?

Well had long trip all the way from London Wolverhampton & back, I had my car in sports mode constantly had over 2500 rpm, Result achieved only 35mpg, but no luck with the dpf light..

 

I have contacted Sytner BMW they told me , DPF needs Regeneration £199...

Make sure the car is reaching correct operating temperature, if it isn't could be a faulty thermostat which won't let the dpf regen. Worth checking out
