Sorry forgot to say im a mk3 owner, euro 3 as well so the egr is easy to find, clean and blank. If you do clean yours, i would blank it as well, but i know on later mk3's and mk4's this causes the engine management light to come on.

Definitely have a go at cleaning it, then i would probably put some bg244 in and run a couple of tanks of bp ultimate or v power diesel.
If problem still persists then you're probably looking at more than a dirty part.
If the egr valve is really dirty, like halfing the airflow diameter through it, then i would give the inlet a clean as well. I cleaned mine yesterday and it had a couple mm of dirt in places and mainly just surface dirt, according to guides on the interweb that means the inlet is fine, was raining so i took that advice lol. Car felt better and gave less smoke on 50m test run (i did change oil, fuel filter and air filter as well).
So yeah, potentially save your self a few hundred quid and get your hands dirty, trust me wear gloves lol.

Had it since august 2013 and at least 5 times a week, so 10 starts at least a week.
Just got back and garage said the starter is gone but dmf is ok, £150 fitted, could of been worse lol
