I just recently purchased my 16v gti back from the guy I sold it too 4 years ago. What a mess! I managed to fix every buggy thing wrong with the car with one exception. The car is experiancing a hesitation in the lower rpm range. One would think intake leak. It seems to get worse as the car warms and can sputter all they way through the rpm range at times once warm. The engine has 350k on it but sounds great and has good compression. What I have attempted.

-Multiple cis units. Including one that I can adjust mixture.
-Complete tune up. Filters, plugs, wires, cap, rotor ect...
-Inspected intake for leaks including plugging off vacs.
-Adjusted timing. It was moved off the mark but didnt correct the problem.

Im suspect it might be leaking injector insolators or seals but open for suggestions. :beer:
