My guess is that water may have got into the starter solenoid area and maybe there is a bad connection down there. If the dash lights don't stay bright when you try to engage the starter motor then maybe it is an earthing lead with a corroded connection.
If these checks don't get you going then the best way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer once you are confident.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

sounds like another plastic rad has bitten the dust,replace the rad or hose if its split and refill with antifreeze and see what happens ,if ok then good if not post here again for more advice

it starts from cold because the auto choke is on ,allowing a richer mixture ,try removing the sender unit in the tank and seeing if the connection from the pump to the outlet connection is ok or leaking causing a loss of fuel pressure
