2001-2006 Audi R8 rear diffuser attachement?

I'm trying to figure out how Audi mounted the rear diffuser on the 2001-2006 R8. I know that they used two pins on the 2000 car that hooked it to the rear crash structure. I tried to watch the videos I have of Le Mans in 2001 where they did the rear end changes, and I couldn't see much.

I know that the changed (reduced the size of parts on) the rear crash structure, though the concept remained the same.

Anyone know of any differences on how the mounted the rear diffuser on the car? I do think that Audi Sport changed it due in part to one of the R8s getting rear-ended at Petit Le Mans in 2000.

Not really it seems. I did read that article a while back, and I re-read it to see if I missed it. I do know that the 2000 vs 2001-06 is different because of the different rear structure, but I don't know and haven't seen the attachment points and how it's actually held to the car.
