Well Correct me If I am wrong  (which I am sure everyone will) but I think they all bloody do it, I asked this question when I first got my Aum, I think it is cos of the tensioner on the Cam belt, I have noticed that If the engine is hot it won't do it, but cold or luke warm starts sound like you got a terminal problem. [:$]
apparently its the starter motor staying engaged after started the car from cold.... i had the same prob. its supposidly a sign that its going but people are saying theres have done it for ages!!!! hope this is off help m8
Its definately the starter motor m8, Mine started screeching last summer and I thought nothing of it till car wouldn't crank one day, bashed it with a hammer and it worked briefly again but only lasted another week, so I got a new one and heypresto quiet as a mouse on start up.
Mine's been squeeling for about 18,000 miles now. I heard from someone that you should give it a knock...or try and give it a clean..could anyone point me in the right direction to which thingumybob is the starter motor, before I take my lump hammer to my water pump. (99, 1.8t)
