Hi all....

just a quick question,

today I noticed that about halfway up the dipstick is some white mayo....there is nothing where the oil itself sits so Im not too fussed.

The header tank is fine so Im thinking maybe condensation because of the short trips Ive been doing,I also have the same stuff on the inside of the oil filler cap(I know this is condensation!)

What do you good people think?

I think you answered your own question, mate. A few spirited drives and it should all disapear.

its condensation mate. mine suffers from it also (lots of short trips)
just seems to be an odd trait of the five pot.
none of my other cars ever did this so it makes me think the oil breather system is pants!
but im no expert! I just clean mine every week or so and as phil has said give it a spirited blast once in a while.
