They are absolutely pulling your leg if they're telling you that you have 7 glow plugs. It sounds like they don't have a clue about TDI's.
Everything you ever wanted or needed to know about TDI's can be found at www.tdiclub.com You should even be able to find a knowledgeable guy in your area that would be willing to take a look at your car. These guys know their stuff. Better than any VW dealer on the planet.

Are you having problems with your heating/cooling? OR did you get a check engine light and found out about P0380 when you brought it to the shop?
You more than likely have an issue with your glow plug harness. The connectors on the glow plug harness (where they plug into your glow plugs) prob need to be cleaned. Read this thread too:
