It could be your CTS (coolant temp sensor). That's usually a big idle issue with these cars. o2 sensor. You can also try adjusting the idle screw on the throttle body to see if that helps. Just remember how much you turned it in case that's not the problem and you need to put it back where it was.
Check this thread out of Vortex. VWVortex.com - High Idle
You'll need a multimeter that reads ohms.
