Default Q7 fix and towing?

Looking for information on towing performance post fix for Q7. I have a small margin but am not far from maximum towing capacity (5600 of 6K). Concerned the TDI fix might leave me unsafe and underpowered in this situation. It is a predicament because dealer will not perform a needed repair without TDI fix, but I am deeply concerned but cannot get any information to put me at ease. Can any of you speak to this situation?

Hi mate
Can you try to talk to Hialeah tow truck guys. I found them useful all the time I interacted with them. I believe they can offer you valuable information on any towing information and advice you need.
Cheers

I've towed 6400 lbs for 500 miles with my Q7. I have trailer brake controller, and the tdi fix. Does wonderful. MPG over the 500 miles over loaded still net 22mpg. I had a 18ft car hauler with a built Jeep, and broke down play set. Used a lot of adblue. The power was not an issue.
