I have an automatic and I hadn't noticed it until I read about it on this forum. Now, I'm aware of the issue, I notice mine surges slightly when cold, but I used to drive old bangers 30 years ago and they were always like that on choke so it doesn't bother me that much.

Yes that is much the same as mine, i probably would not have thought much about it if I had not read all the comments. Hopefully it won't get worse in the winter.

I have had my Q2 35 tfsi manual now for 3 weeks and approx. 700 miles. I have had absolutely no sign of Kangarooing. As smooth as silk.

I too have not seen kangarooing but have noticed significant issues at low speed. Most often seen (although I must now be self-programming not to do it) is where you would change down towards a traffic island ready to stop, perhaps doing 5mph, when the island becomes clear and you decide to go - the car will not pick up smoothly without the clutch being pressed and then extra throttle. Every car I ever has will pull away in 2nd at 5mph. Not this one.
