I only get the last point.

When GPF is happening you get a dashboard message - keep driving!

Every time ?

On the Diesel, this message is only the last resort.

It will not tell you when it is doing regen normally, only if you interrupted the regen a number of times it will say this.

I would really prefer an option to be able to select to have it shown every time.

A "DPF Regen - x% done - Estimated time/distance to completion x minutes/miles"

This way i would be able to drive an extra mile to let it finish instead of now, where i only notice that it was doing the regen, when i stop the car, after i parked it, and notice when i exit the car, that the underside is pinging a lot because the DPF is really hot.

No I've only had it once in 4 months.
