Default Adding a Tow hitch

Is there a DIY or instructions or a local company that can add a tow hitch to my 07 Q7?

Please use "search" and do a search on Trailer Hitch, there is lots of information already on the forum.

Here is one:

Based on my needs for our Q5 (towing a boat in and out of the water but not leaving the property), I went with a non OEM class III hitch for $325. This did not include a wiring harness (add'l cost of $150.).

Here's some add'l help: trailer hitch in markham - Google Search

You realize the Q5 is rated to tow 4400 lbs ?? You're not asking if your warranty is affected by using an aftermarket hitch . .. are you ??

I'd speak with the service manager to confirm that the guy you spoke with is wrong. Perhaps call another dealer ...
