Any help appreciated.

agree with miles,you need a prof to read codes and determine problem

The generic codes you have are of little help. Suggest you find someone that can pull factory codes. Sounds like you have a electronic thottle control problem...but you probaly already are aware of that. Lots of shops have the Ross-Tech Vag Com that can pull the codes needed to diagnose. Part stores can only pull generic codes.
