My old Golfs rear main seal went and doused the clutch in oil. Gripped fine cold, drove for a few miles and it got awful. You'll need a new clutch if that is the case.
It slips worse after the car is warmed up because the clutch has been slipping during that warm-up time, heating up from slipping, then slips really bad until it can't be ignored. the driver notices "It slips after it warms up"
