  1. My car: 2013 Scirocco R, 2.0 TFSI (EA113), gasoline, automatic, 70k km, APR Stage 2+ Bought the car used in 2017 at 54k km, all mods as is...I didn't add or take anything away since. I have a lot of questions but for now, I'll just start off with this one: I have VCDS diagnostic tool and didn't get fault code but I noticed the Long-Term Fuel Trim is negative and stays there....between 14-18). I don't think the fault code gets lit until it's like -25 long term fuel trim, but -18 is pretty up there and not exactly sure what is causing it. What are some things I should be checking for? Signs, symptoms, sounds/feel, etc? What does a negative long-term fuel trim eventually mean? I mean, if I don't get it corrected for a long time and just leave it like this, what potential problems am I risking if I keep driving it around with this negative fuel trim?
  2. Yes, I noticed that but it's not uncommon. I've searched everywhere from facebook groups to other vw forums and the Scirocco R section is always small to none. It's really hard to find other experienced Scirocco owners to ask questions and get advice from. Such a beautiful car, but such a difficult car to get help with since very few people have it and know anything about it. I do believe it is very similar or almost identical to one of the Golf models...I think Golf R. I heard one of the Golf models is practically identical internally as the Scirocco only the outer body is the main difference.
  3. I'm glad I found this forum. It might be helpful for me cuz I need it. I'm from Canada, living and working in South Korea. I bought a used 2013 Scirocco R back in 2017. I have a bunch of questions and hope some of the more experienced people can help me out. It's really hard to get any answers since a) I don't speak Korean fluently so can't communicate with most mechanics here, b) Korea doesn't have a lot of Scirocco owners and places that can service this tuned car, and c) I'm not an expert in cars by any means, just whatever basics I can learn from the net. Cheers guys! Joe
