Madison Wisconsin area reputable independent service for 20k mile Intermediate service

My 2018 Porsche Cayenne Base model needs the 20,000 mile Intermediate Service.

The dealership is quoting $750.  Shocking (my first Porsche), considering my BMW X5 and Mercedes S550 were about $300. 

Any recommendations of an independent in the Madison, Wisconsin area (~150miles) for the Intermediate service?  Basically, it is an oil and filter change with brake fluid flush.

Thank you.

Diesel fuel system under pressure when shut down?

Re the question on draining water and changing the fuel filter on a Cayenne Diesel. Will the fuel system retain pressure that must be bled down before attempting to change the filter or remove water? Will it be necessary to purge air from the fuel system before starting? Thanks!

How often does the fuel filter need to be drained of water or changed on the diesel engine? Is there a DIY site?
