Hi..there

Best place to start id say going by your description..would be the intake system

,intercooler system,vacuum lines incase any have been disturbed during the service..the air intake would of been - if they have replaced the air filter so you may want to look there first and ensure its fitted properly/the filters in correctly and hoses are secure etc..so basically you need to check all the rubber hose fittings etcif 1.8T then check around the turbo hoses too - if your getting whooshing noise on throttle and sluggish certainly sounds like either of the 3 areas above need inspected.if as you say you just had it serviced then the garage who did the work should be duty bound to check this for you free of charge if the problem wasnt their prior to service..I do hope this helps
