I'm not exactly what dates I will be where, but I want to smart with planning work as it can take weeks to get an appointment. I need recommendations in these cities: Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, and Houston. Thanks.

Denver...Hardey's Motorwerks is my go to. Honest, reasonable $ wise and been in the Audi/VW game for many years. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/hardey’s-auto-werks-review.379346/
They are a bit south of Denver (Parker), so for a shop near the city I would point you to Bluewater and Salta. I have experience with all three and they are all great shops. Bluewater will be the most $ but they do more crazy VW/Audi builds than anyone in CO.

What kind of work will you need done? If it's an oil change, throw an oil extractor in the trunk.

Are you just coming up on some maintenance intervals? Surely you could get the "big" stuff like haldex/dsg service done in a single visit with an oil change or whatever.
I had a good experience with Bluewater while on a big road trip, they're right next to a DIY bay rental spot too, which can bring costs down if you're comfortable with the easier stuff.

Thanks for your replies. I did need an oil change, new tires, and an alignment for my R. All of which I got done in Las Vegas. I had major work done before my trip began in Septemer.

Did you use one of the recommended shops?

Bumped:
2017 Alltrack S 6MT APR1 87 here 80k miles new plugs and coils 5k ago, when added tune

now on a work road trip,
may need a good indy german shop in houston, baton rouge, mobile or pensacola (end of trip) -

getting intermittent EPC but no CEL,
nothing on Vehicle Staus on MIB,
obd11 shows intermittent injector 4 codes that clear when engine off.

running it hard in this heat xxcountry towing...oil temps 215-235 max, water temp 200, fluids checked good, using only top tier feul, 87-91 octane

Only known good shops that you have used preferred, but good rep in community ok.

Thanks!
