Yes, you will only notice if you are traveling slowly or if you stop before it has finished / cooled.

It stinks, it gets hotter (around the engine bay - not on the temp gauge) and the idle goes rough.

If you monitor (very closely) there is a drop in mpg.

No warning light - that's if it isn't working / regening properly.

Loads of info on the UK forum :D

No warning light. It stinks but only outside the car.

I find the exhaust note changes to a deeper rumble at idle up to about 1500rpms....as well as the above mentioned...
