I took the car into VW and told them about the symptoms. They did all their usual checks (so i'm told) including transmission fluid levels etc, and all looked good. I also asked them to check for any software updates. It turns out there was one, which they subsequently applied. After driving it though, i honestly can't tell any difference. It's still slow to change gear when cold and revs in excess of 3000rpm. Once its warmed up, it's fine.
On a different note, I started the car this morning and was met with a barrage of warnings - the first of which disappeared quickly before I could fully read it, but Gearbox fault was the first one! The second was either traction control or stability management, and the third was an issue with the stop/start system. I turned off the engine, turned it back on again, and all was well this time. I've just been out and started it again - no warnings.
There is obviously something underlying here...
