Look at all the pipes under the inlet manifold
And if no leaks, take the throttle body off nd give it a good clean.
Any good link to TB cleaning as every one I have tried the pictures in the guides are dead!

How To Clean the Throttle Body: VW & Audi DIY
Take it that amk is electronic throttle body? If so 4 alankey bolts, one little pipe on the top, a plug to unclip, a gaskets not to lose and a intercooler pipe to come off. I always clean mine with electrical connection cleaner from maplins but break cleaner will be ok in small quantities. Dont move the flap unless you have vag com to reset it.
I just cleaned my TB and before the the rev counter would bounce at idle and after cleaning it out its all good no more bounce!
has anyone moved the throttle like in the cleaning gide?
