Is it me or is it slow to pull away

Got an A4 Avant 1.9 tdi 130 sport on a 54 plate, lately i've noticed that the car when pulling from traffic lights or from a junction there is a delay when pulling off is this a standard thing for this car or is there something wrong.

I did a code check from local garage no faults found, yesterday I removed the EGR value to give a clean as some other threads mention this so I thought why not what have I to loss. There was plenty of coke build up (black stuff) which took ages to clean at the same time I clean the air box too as this had a few foreign bodies in it lol. All put back and to be honest I have noticed no real difference to pulling away but the torque is a bit better.

The car drive fine when at speed with no adverse issues noted.

Any one got any suggestion what I should try next??????

Check all your boost hoses for splits or cracks and check the clips that hold the hoses onto the intercooler and turbo mate
