    By any chance do you drive a 1.8T? There's a frequent problem with this engine relating to sludged up oil pump giving intermittent problems. Suggested fix i've heard repeated many times is to have the pump removed & cleaned, flush the engine & replace the oil feed pipe to the turbo. Not expensive as only a couple of hours labour, any competant mechanic should be able to do this so you can avoid the main dealer!
