╬čbviously you mean the idle speed .
It is a known problem for gti, and the cold start valve.
You can either clean it or try to settings from the beginning.
For help, see here (since you are from Greece :)) :

The air valve that some people call the cold start valve can quickly be checked with short 90 degree hose off the end. When it is cold you can see that the end is open or pushed out, and when it is hot you can see that it is closed. There is a test in the FSM that involves removing and putting in water. However it is more likely that you have a faulty idle air control valve (front right side of throttle body intake). It could also simply be the idle adjustment screw under plastic rubber cap, or mass air flow sensor, or even a vacuum leek.

Or that the water isn't getting to the air valve and needs bleeding...
