I am in South Africa - Golf 5 2 FSI - done 95 000 km - since 90 000 km service I have had intermittant loss of power, usually in lower gears. Car still runs, as power loss lasts abouts 2 secs. Usually after this if I stop, engine will run roughly. Alpine VW in Pinetown have tested it and cannot find anything wrong.
