        The super rich just do not value money, only the luxuries that it can supply. I’m not in that league. So the ME Corvette is what I will get to play with. Seems like a better deal to me.

          I think I would be changing my own oil... then again if I'm ever foolish enough to spend over $1 million for a car or lucky enough to have that kind of money, I think a couple of ZR1's with a $120 oil change would suit me fine.

            You're completely incorrect.

              Changing the oil on a Corvette is easy. Changing the oil on a Lambo/Ferrari/Porsche is not. All the underbody aero has to be removed to access all the drain plugs and on certain cars like the Buggati's it involves removing body panels. However I will admit that the oil change cost on the Bugatti is nothing more than an over inflated cost just because they can. Most exotic dealers charge between $800-1500 for oil changes which is also inflated a bit. It takes a lot more time and work to change oil in these cars and there's also the exotic "tax" you're paying.

                Frankly, the French have never been knows as engineers. This $20k oil change shouldn't be a surprise.

                  When I was younger I drove a BMW as a daily driver. The service (aka inspections) with an oil and filter ran between 600 and 800 dollars. Now days I pay for the Corvette service out of pocket--hoorah. Charlie aka cutnout

                    I just talked with my outstanding Tech this past Thursday, and he too is pretty sure that oil and filter changes on the ME will be about the same price as now, perhaps/maybe up to a few dollars more. Of course, as he readily volunteered, he has yet received not one drop of info, and is just guessing.

                    ​​​​​​He said that with the info he got early on the C7 process when he had to do his first major repair, which required dropping the entire rear end and much more, that he is not concerned about what C8 maintenance and repair will bring. Of course, he is one of the best, and when he approaches something new, if he has one shadow of a doubt, he doesn’t start guessing and experimenting, instead calling his “Tech Hot Line Team” just outside Detroit, conversing with them before he wastes his time and my money. As he also noted, he will be scheduled into regional training sessions — in addition to getting computer schematics and more to assist him/others in C8 R/M.

                      I asked, “Rick, is that a loaner, with your first one in the shop?”

                      He says, “no this is my second one, and yes, the first one is in the shop.”

                      Thursday or Friday of that week, he shows up in a for our five year old pickup, and says, “well, they are now both in the shop.”

                      And throughout that summer, there were more than occasional times when he drove his pickup to the pool. Ah yes, we all remember the repeat failures of Lucas electrical systems.
                      Guess things changed over time or he got lucky but my dad had a 1972 XJ6 and it turned out to be a very reliable car. I inherited it and just got rid of it 2 years ago. Still going strong.
                      There is a madness to my method!
