Last I knew, there was a pretty healthy Audi club in the Dallas area - I
went to one of their meetings a couple of years back. Check over at
Audiworld and Audi club websites. Soon as you can hook up with those
guys you'll have a list of places to do the work. Any decent shop that
handles VW/Porsche can do this work. The only sticking point is calling
Jorgen to see if they have one in stock. If not, they can turn yours
around in about 5 days incl shipping.
I've done 2 - they're no fun, but its not rocket science... Hardest part
is orienting the rack to slip it out the wheel well. You forget to pull
the top 2 trans bolts to give you that extra 1/4 of room and you'll be
there all day fighting with it...
