Ok, I know this normally means break fluid. . . or bleed? I'm not sure. this is the first time on the mk7 something like this has happened so I'm not sure how soon to address it.

shall I leave it before it gets worse or shall I get it seen to immediately? The inner car noob is coming out.

Hmmm I'm not sure. I may need to check the FSH. Hasn't been done since I've owned the car. and I've done about 10k in it. It's currently at 24k

dont mean to ask a daft question but are you pressing brakes when the key is on the off position? 
try it them you start engine to check buddy as the pump needs to be active :) just making sure as a know someone recently thought the same and turns out it was this and they never noticed this before lol

Hehe, good question. No I live at the top of a steep hill. . . so using the breaks is literally the first thing I do when using the car.

But yeah, sponginess is air in the hydraulics.  Seems odd on a fairly new car though, as above the fluid change often gets missed for years and people don't notice.  Have you checked the fluid level?

Not yet, it's not seriously spongy, but enough that I noticed. I've booked the car in to get the wheel fixed and the aeroblade sprayed on Monday, so will address the brakes next month. . . (lol priorities)
