They did say that if the noise was coming from anything not related to wear and tear, the warranty would cover it.
Finally got my car back after two weeks. Dealership said they did find the slave cylinder was leaking and that my clutch was still serviceable but they recommended I replace it. They couldn't get me a free clutch under warranty, so if I paid for the part, they'd install it free of charge.

Total was $540 for the clutch kit. I thought that was pretty reasonable considering I just got a new clutch out of it. Here's the list if we're still tracking it.

1. allset 2010 (started at 2k now at 28k- happens cold and warm)
2. Carsfeverguy 2010 (am at 31000kms, started 2000kms ago-only on cold mornings, none after that)

10.Sieran (2011 GTI) - Started at ~5,000 miles only in reverse going up steep hills. Progressed as time went on and will now do it in 1st and reverse once transmission is "hot" or very cold (sub 40 degrees out, sitting outside all night).
11. iGTI (2010 GTI) Does it on on initial launch 1st or reverse my started doing it around 30k miles I currently have 35k

Me too - 2012 6spd, mostly in cold temps on cold/semi-cold start, started in Reverse only, then spread to 1st.

First time I heard it was actually not long after I bought it in April 2015, at about 23k miles. Got worse this winter at approx 45-50k miles.

Any warranty from VWOA? Will I have to pay the dealer for part+labor of VW's faulty part? Clutch labor alone is $1k...

29. Wolffman316 (2012 GTI) - About to hit 86k. Noise when car cold (any air temp), 1st and reverse.

What are the odds this is covered under a 3rd party Service contract?

Wow, just found this thread thanks to you. Thank you for digging it up.
I had a feeling something was wrong with my TOB. I've got a 2011 with 116k miles and it only does it on cold mornings for the first 5ish minutes of operation. No issues after warmed up.
This is just another reason for me to get up and change my clutch.
