Mine's done exactly the same thing since I bought it 2 years and over 20,000 miles ago. My previous, almost identical, van didn't do it. The only difference between the two is the EGR valve which is of a totally different design between vans. Gurgling van is a 2011, non-gurgling van is 2006.

You can fit a non-watercooled EGR valve..... or by-pass the valve all together and just connect the two pipes to each other. My Mk7 140 is a non-cooled one from new..

No, both are water cooled, they're just totally different. I only mention it because they're identical otherwise.

Mine (2010 model) sometimes gurgles when it has had a good run, I've never worried about it.
