Thats their finale of their diagnosis I will post a video tomorrow as i got car back today but late so tomorrow before i go do my errands will post a link off youtube since i can only attach pictures here not videos.
Does the "smoke" dissipate into the air quickly and only happen the most when you first step in the gas? What is the temperature when you see it?

Looks like they agree. Post a video tomorrow. Condensation can linger especially if many short trips allow condensation to form in the muffler/resonator.

Here is a video of before their bs diagnosis to no avail
That was the charge to diagnose it and had there been a problem they would have refunded the charge.

But it not continuous is it? You see the biggest puff of smoke on initial push of the accelerator? What is the high ambient temperature for the next few days?
Basically you turn car on when idling and it starts non stop at whatever temperature does that make sense?

It's understandable in cold weather, but not in warmer weather. I doubt you're going to get any help from the dealer at this point. I think the only reasonable thing to do at this point is monitor oil and coolant levels, and return to the dealer if you notice abnormal oil or coolant consumption.

Where I live, we have a couple of really good independent VW performance shops, and if you see abnormal consumption or oil or coolant and the dealer comes up with nothing again, you might want to ask around in the local VW community and find out if there's a good independent shop near you that can take a look at it.
