Is it cold weather where you are? Do you take short trips/errands? Are you loosing coolant?

This is just moisture accumulation, nothing to be too concerned about. I would recommend that atleast once every 5-7 days you take the car out on the highway and get it nice and hot. This will help reduce moisture accumulation inside your engine. The 2.0FSI, have sludge/burning oil issues as well, so this would be a very good idea to prolong your engine life.

Also, what oil are you using? You should be using a 5-10w40 synthetic.
