I let the car cool down for a bit if I've driven it hard before I switch off the engine.
Oil changes every 7500km with 5W40 full synthetic.
DSG oil changes every 30,000km.
New Spark Plugs with every oil change.
Inspect the engine bay for anything out of the ordinary (oil seepage, loose connectors etc).
Generally keep the car and engine bay clean and tidy.

I start my annual maintenance routing with ritualistic sacrifice. Nothing too crazy mind you, just a baby goat, or a cat, if I'm feeling adventurous.

As I don't have easy access to a volcano, I make do with a pentagram on the floor, and an assload of hobby lobby candles. The looks you get when you ask "are these red candles made with real blood?" are priceless. The instrument used in these sacrifices is baseball bat spiked with the various subframe and suspension bolts I've accumulated in my years. A modern-day, gentelmans weapon if there ever was one.

After that it's straight to praying, for no less than 6 days straight. First for my eternal soul, and then for my damn GTI. This is no anglo saxon god I'm praying to, no sir. This is a 9 foot tall, 3 horned, centaur-demon with an upside down VW symbol branded into his chest hide. Part way through the prayer, I'm speaking in tongues I knew not possible. I spew German Castrol oil out of all my orifices and exhale a years worth of one-tire-fires smoke, all while questioning my sanity.

It's only then when I realize, in a moment of clarity, I should have bought Honda.

Invest in some MAF cleaner and clean off the MAF, MAP and IAT sensors each 5k mile oil change. Use a fresh OEM filter each oil change, too. I'd get a blackstone labs report on the oil every ~25k miles to make sure the wear on the engine is nominal. The fuel filter is pretty important, do it sooner than every 40k miles.

Keep up on scheduled maintenance,
Oil changes every 7k if you drive hard
Weekly "carbon cleaning"
Ensure fluids aren't making it to the ground
Regularly vagcom scan/monitor
Extra "carbon cleaning"

That's about it. The car seems to do well without excessive maintenance.

A trip to the ol' dynamometer is a good way to find out. If you're down on power, something is up.

If you're down on power on a dyno (in a VW) then something is up...your bonnet

All VW owners know to close their bonnets when on a Dyno for "special" reasons.
