    First check for any error codes. This type of hesitation is normally an air leak. Have you done a full boost leak test like mentinoed in the FAQ? Even though you said you checked for air leaks this will rule out air leaks for sure vs. a quick visual inspection. At least on Passat in the US, there is an intercooler hose which rubs through and you can't see it.
