When i'm cruising on the motorway (not using cruise control though!), and the car's at about 2200-2600 rpm, ish, on a very light throttle.......

........the engine kind of stutters ever so slightly as I move the throttle again.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just mine?

Not noticed this on the Mk5 GT TDi but yes on my Tdi 115 if you were cruising at a similar throttle position for a protracted length of time and then suddenly accelerate there would be a hesitation. I would not go as far as calling it a stutter.

almost as if it was having a doze on autopilot and got suddenly woken up[:eek:)]

correct me if im wrong, but since this new engine has been introduced has it not been increased in power only slightly i.e from 136 bhp to 140 bhp or something like that, could it be that the problem lies with one variant and not the other....just a thought[?]

Mine same mate. Just a quick judder sometimes does it when pull away from lights. Its like you catch the brake pedal and it judders if you know wot i mean. Vw cant fix it theyve had it for 3 wks and still same. Ive even tried two chips and air filter and still no joy. Let me know if you sort it cheers
