When I first turn A/C on there is a mildewy funky odor. This does not subside upon running

Does the smell go away with the heat?

I turned on the heat. No odor. Guess I should take to the dealer.

Normal for VW Audi cars.

Turn the AC compressor off about a mile before turning the car off and I found it prevents it.

The smell is very acrid. Like vinegar, sour.
