Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)

These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100
It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.
I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

The most likely cause is loss of power assistance to the braking system which means you will need to apply increased brake pressure to compensate for the loss of assistance.
The problem will be with the brake servo assist. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.
It is unwise to be driving the car with this condition. If you lose all power assistance to the brakes, which could easily occur with this fault, the pedal will become very hard, you will need to apply very high pedal pressure and the vehicle will be very difficult to stop. You need to take the car to a VW dealer for service or to a competent brake specialist in your area to inspect the system and rectify the fault.
VW did a recall on some earlier year models for a leaking brake servo and I understand the problem was a faulty vacuum hose which would fail and leak. I am not aware of any recall for this item on later models like your 2004 vehicle.
All the best.
