alright so my 03 tiptronic GTI is seriously messed up. the drive isnt smooth because when it shifts its rough and it makes my tires chirp. The ASR/ESP light stays on and my boost pressure doesnt go above -.06 bar. Is it my transmission/ECU/wires... i have no clue what happened i just need to fix it... help

i had to have my 2002.5 VR6 transmission replaced under warrenty. The same things happened. Rough shifts with the wheels chirping. Reverse was a bitch too. It is tipronic too. Have the tranny checked

Chances are your MAF is bad. You really cannot do anything without scanning the car... Of course you could start throwing parts at it, but it would be much better to know what the problem is first, no?

02' tranny's had a programming upgrade along with a control solenoid replacement...it should be covered under warranty.
check with your dealer to see if that specific campaign has been performed on your car's tranny.
