im willing to bet that you had a coil pack fail on you. they are one of the most common failures on the 1.8t engine. another thing i would check is for any boost hoses that may have popped off if you were accelerating quickly.
but before you go and buy a new coil pack. unplug your maf sensor and see if it runs any better than before. if the problem goes away when you unplug you maf then the mass air flow sensor is bad. but if its the same then you have a bad coil pack.

SOURCE: VW Golf MK3 wont start
fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!
