      I have not been able to isolate the cause any further. I replaced the plugs and coils again (got a great deal so I figured "why not?") and that did not make any difference.

      I had light smoke under most conditions, and very heavy smoke under hard acceleration especially after idling or low speed driving.

      Check the valve cover.
      The valve cover is hollow and if the baffles inside it become broken or cracked it can cause oil to move into the intake manifold.

      I think you are off base with your characterization of the GTI as a "special" car in this regard. This is not a Ferrari that Maranello will not let you own unless you can prove previous ownership....

      I agree and disagree with this. Yes, we as enthusiasts know that this is a problem part and change it regularly. But it's part of a larger paradigm problem; is maintenance like this at the...

      I'm not aware of any design modification/update history on the VC. But that doesn't mean there hasn't been some.

      My thinking here is "no".
      In my case, the broken baffles caused the oil to go right into the intake manifold so I think the PCV valve itself would not have too much of a bearing.
      Although, I cannot...

      Given the problems that can be hidden inside, I'd shy away..... but that's just my opinion.

      I'm not sure about the manifold causing problems, although I'm sure it could. My issue was with the Valve Cover being all cracked up internally, with the channels and baffles that route air/oil vapor...

      Some oil in the intercooler is normal. The amount you describe seems in the normal range to me.

      I second this. My GTI was eating 1 qt every 100 (yes 100) miles. It was the valve cover which was cracked all to hell and gone.
