If the subframe is an issue, is something like this worth adding along with the bolts:
And for engine and transmission mounts:
Most of this is mentioned in the context of the 2.0t engine, but I'd assume some of this would be TDI relevant, too. (Also 2.5s)
Run out is a non technical term for uneven wear
which results in what looks like a vertical 'wobble'.
Feathering is the term the dealer gave me when they
did the alignment. I guess it is again a non technical term
for uneven wear caused by tire pressure, load, balance, all
those things which cause tires to wear unevenly. Best I consult:
Google or a tire expert.
what size are you running right now? :225-45/17
tire roundness, mine is radial resulting in a small yet pronounced hop.
Feathering is where each tread develops both a round edge on one side
a sharp edge on the other side. This is usually caused by incorrect toe-in setting.
I have 2010 JSW TDI. Lots of good ideas on what one would like to do to their car. So far I installed an AFE cold air intake and the Banks Monster exhaust. Still mulling over what kind of wheels I'd like to put on but, I don't really want to lower it either. Suggestions are welcome .
Here's my car in Key West last year-it looks right at home too.

I am running 225 35 Dunlop Direzzas up front and 245 35 Direzzas in the back.
Like Toe Ball said I have KSport control pro coils on the car that allow me to adjust the camber in the front, without them it would be pretty hard to pull these wheels off.
They are for sale though, $1500 plus shipping.

These are 'blesk' LEDs sourced from fleabay.
I have taken them out. They blow. They throw codes. You can clear the light by cycling your euro switch-everyone has a euro switch, right?-to park and then back off. It seems the LEDs don't have enough load to please the test cycle run when you turn the car on sometimes. But once you energize them the load is okay.
I would not do it again. The look is not worth it, IMO.
