I say accept them doing a goodwill replacement of the parts cost.
Read the threads and do it yourself.
However, and a big, however, is that VW is well aware of their problem and have yet to do anything positive to fix it...if its poor craftsmanship at a dealer installing wrong than it should be covered for X period of years after the install as its a fresh part that they know they have issues with on numerous revisions of the part...

Meaning they should take care of a loyal customer who is being hosed a little out of warranty but a leg of their enterprise (dealership) for a common issue that they continue to put a bandaid on rather than fix the problem, same goes with the tensioner
Why V-tec When there is VVTL-i?
