Hi,i had the same problem with a 2003 Polo Tdi. I hear that noise only at low speed,starting or on irregular surfaces. I've solved that changing anti-roll bar because it had taken radial play in the support bushings..it's a little expensive but i've solved the problem once for ever. It's justifiable on a "old" car as mine..but on yours! I hope i have given an help to you..good luck!

yeah cant believe its happening on such a new car, mine used to do the same, turned out that i had bend the bottom wishbone, plus the bushes were nackered and the drive shaft was hitting the chassis leg, changed the wishbone my self and no problems :), possibility of the strut top bearing too. good luck
