What exactly is this? Why does it do this? Never had this on a car before, happened to me twice also, very strange!

it happens to every MKIV, it's supposed to be a type of sealant/lubricant & I had my GTI for 2 years & now my brother has had it for another 2, & beleive me the dealer cannot get rid of all of it. just clean it up, you'll be fine.

where does it come out of though. I couldn't figure it out, I though it was something from the road on the first time

It is injected into the body cavities and some of it comes out when the car sits out in hot weather.
