Thanks for the update. So are VW replacing it under warranty? I've not heard from my dealer and haven't gotten around to phoning them for an update. Sounds like there are quite a few breaking then..

As unsightly as it may seem on close inspection, I would be tempted to put a line of black insulation tape over the crack?

Yeah, work is being done under warranty. Having said that, my car was purchased new & I noticed the crack within the first week of ownership - supplying dealership was made aware on day 7 of ownership

Oh dear Scott! At least you can point them to this thread should they be difficult in sorting it under warranty. What spec/model is yours? Posting up some pictures would be useful to others as additional evidence.
