Yes just GTI or cars with the timing chained 2.0 TSI engine.
The GTD uses a timing belt and a different type of tensioner.

Ah this is an answer Ive been looking for for a while. To date I'd only seen mention of petrol engines, and I was getting worried if I might face this problem also.

Ive got a GTD (61 reg), so sounds like Im safe then. Phew!

I almost bought a GTI myself, but there was something more alluring about the diesel engined mk6's.

Having said that (I dont mean to gloat!), I feel sorry for the guys who are going through this. It cant be nice knowing that every time you go to start your car it might lead to this, and you might be left out of pocket for something thats not even remotely your fault. :cry:
