DSL modem recomendations (VDSL2, specifically)

I'm going to be having DSL for the first time in many years and need a recommendation on a modem.
I'm used to just buying a Surfboard cable modem and then using a router of my choosing, but I'm seeing almost all DSL modems have built-in routers. Can they all be truly disabled? I'm kind of a network neat freak and tend to do some complex QoS stuff along with pretty detailed port configuration.
I'm in Seattle, and am getting the 40/20 Mbs package from Century Link. I believe it's VDSL2, so that limits the choices.
Currently thinking the Zyxel Q1000Z is the front-runner, but I'd love to hear from DSL users.
