    Vacuum leak I suspect... check all the hoses/pipes coming off the inlet mani as a start for slipts and cracks etc..

    Block 032 in the engine group on VAGCOM will help to give you an idea of if you have a vac leak, a figure of 5% or more indicates ECU is adding fuel on idle....

    Block 032 is a code for a bunch of data the the car's ECU will return if you monitor it via VCDS (vag-com). This code will give you information about your air/fuel mixture as seen by the lambda sensors. I would say that you need to find someone local with this software/cable and do some checking as you might have some errors codes logged, which will point you in the right direction. Here is a thread that will tell you who can help you.

    Yeah, if you haven't got a clue what it is how are you going to fix it?

    Just take it into a garage?!
