The A4 sport and ultrasport packages have the strut bar, and they also have the mounting tabs welded to the body. The non-sport versions do not have the tab. I would first look to see if you have the tabs - if you do, then just order part 8D0 805 645 A (20) which is the cross support made for the B5 Passat (see below).

The mounting tabs, if you need them, are:
8D0 803 357 A (18)
8D0 803 358 A (19)

The bar bolts to the tabs using one M8x20 bolt per side (21).
