Have other people experienced the Volkswagen Scirocco DPF regenerating every 150 miles after the emission fix?

My 2013 Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TDI DSG recently went for its emissions recall fix and since then it has gone into DPF Regeneration mode every 150-200 miles. It feels very rough under idle mode and is no where near as smooth as before - has anyone else experienced these issues?

In a word, yes. Typical. Tiguans were the worst affected. The next thing likely to happen is that your EGR gets choked up.
