There's  a write up with pictures in the Winter 2004 Quattro Quarterly:  p 
75, "How to Repair - Modifications That Make a Difference" that discusses 
added this mod to the C4 Chassis, written by Brent Henry.

It mentions the same part numbers, but also the offset Brake Fluid 
reservoir that is needed, because the cross bar will interfere with the 
stock one.  That pn is 8E0 611 301, according to the article.
