Well, in my case, Linda was right, and this was verified by Mike at Carlsen.

He said that he has seen fiche numerical sequences (when identifying a VIN)
off by a great amount.  Evidently Audi creates the fiche with the break-in 
VINs months before the car is built, which is the reason for the disconnect...

So, despite the fiche saying that I have a late 1990 Coupe, my engine parts
appear to agree more with those from the early 1990 series...
