I can name one book.  _VW GOLF_and_Derivatives_ by John Blunsden.  He has a
chapter titled "Scirocco Marks 1 and 2, Golf performance with coupe style."

I've always thought of the MK1/Mk2 stuff to be dumb, personally(or whenever
an American calls a Rabbit a Mk1 Golf), but I have to disagree, Paul - I've
always associated A-1-2-3 with chassis, Mk1-2 with bodystyles.  All
Sciroccos, be it Mark 1 or 2, are A1 chassis.  The Mk1 "Golf" happens to be
an A1 chassis, the M2 an A2 - but the "A" is chassis, Mark = body.

According to MY books of European
>author & decent

Blunsden is British descent, also.  Somehow that adds credibility?  Don't know.
