Just experienced this for this first time, did the usual, took pipes apart, goopy slime came out with minimum water. I took apart the upper pipe that connects to the throttle body and flushed out the entire pipe with brake cleaner, blew out all the remaining debris/cleaner and it runs perfect again.

Is the TSB still open? 2013 with 82k miles?

As far as I am aware, Volkswagen is still installing kits.

I have the kit on mine. First time 1/17 - 53,000 miles, towed it and had cold weather kit installed under certified preowned warranty, 2nd time - 1/20 -89,000 miles - drained 2 1/2 cups of water out of the intercooler- towed it under dieselgate roadside assistance- i killed the battery and thatís why it wouldnít start after emptying the intercooler pipe. So, donít view the kit as a fix, i am going to drain the pipe at every oil change and be very aware of humid and cold weather (just have to drive my gen 2 Passat instead of the bug).

Update: its been about 6 weeks and 1400 miles, the bug has a winter front for days below 60*. I checked the intercooler hose today, ONLY 3 drips came out! Yay! Will update in 5,000 miles.
