Limp Mode ????

Hi all, im Zak and new to this forum and would be extremely grateful if anyone can give me some advice on my 2006 diesel X3 Sport.
Purchased the vehicle approx 8 weeks ago and was extremely pleased with it.
Unfortunately in the last week or so when i try to accelerate through 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear there is a definite rev limitation to each gear and it feels as though the engine is in a kind of 'limp mode'. the engine does not exceed 2000, 2500 and 3000 RPM in each respective gear and there are no warning lights on the dash.
I have done a little research and found that the 'diesel particle filter' may need cleaning/changing, but can anyone shed any light on this please with regard of costs etc
much appreciated if anyone can help
