Well actually it doesnt happen with weather over 25 degrees c just checked a day after dealer had it.
The dealer might be right, in this case. I would still keep an eye on coolant and oil levels though, out of an abundance of caution.

Looks like normal cold start vapor and condensation drips to me.

I would monitor your fluids for a few fill ups but I think it looks fine. I’m with the dealer on this one.
Yeah its exactly that what you said i just thought my car had an issue to why the fuck it did what it did thanks anyways.

I had a bad head gasket on a different car and the exhaust had a sweet smell (and taste lol). Maybe work checking.
Yeah as dealer said they havent seen in their life my specific model of car to ever have a blown head gasket anytime soon haha

Best thing about it is...You don't have to worry about the dealer working on it. I couldn't possibly imagine having them do a head gasket on your car. It would never be the same again. Thank the lords!

Yeah and I am ocd af and trust nobody touching my car behind closed doors and hate anyone working on my car tbh other then my bf for minor miscellaneous stuff not even my oil i let anyone touch i purchase all the required material and me n my bf do it by a special oil vacuum thing. The only time i let someone touch my fluids is transmission flush and new one in by vw specialist mechanic not dealer. Other then that never anything else. Also brakes too only vw verified mechanic shop as well i take to nobody else as that is a bitch to do on your own.
