    its just an excess plug on a generic loom - tied up out the way at the factory

    ie it will plug into a component not used on your engine but generic looms are fitted to save on costs

    As for what component I cant say

    if ur still puzzled then track down a VXR for instance or even a diesel variant mk5 and see where this connector plugs into. Hopefully one of these models utilises it

    I have this plug on my Burg and often wondered what it was for. But as GeordieBandit said it's prob a spare plug for another component not fitted to the car.
