Doing a $21,000 Bugatti Oil Change DIY Style, Worth It?
There’s a fun little fact floating around the internet about one of the most expensive cars in the world that might destroy your mind. It isn’t necessarily related to how the car performs or any of the exotic materials within but instead relates to how the maintenance for this car has to take place. In fact, all of the hoopla is over one basic maintenance item that you would think could be done in the garage within about 20 minutes and normally costs maybe 30 or 40 bucks depending on how good of oil you would like to put in your vehicle.
If we haven’t pretty much given it away by now, we’re talking about the oil change that goes down in a Bugatti Veyron. At one point or another, you’ve probably heard the little tidbit of information about how the change will run you $21,000 or so. No matter the quality or amount of oil in any vehicle, how complicated the process is, or how expensive the car originally costs, that seems a bit pricey. However, when you take a look at the process that actually goes into changing the oil on this machine, well, you might have just have had your dreams of owning a Bugatti destroyed just by taking a look at what it takes to carry out one of the most basic processes possible.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll see how a couple of guys take on changing oil by themselves instead of getting professional help from the Bugatti’s home country of France in order to get a $21,000 oil change done on a slightly tighter budget.
As it turns out, you actually need to take apart quite a good bit in order to get access to all of the places that you need in order to carry out the job. To some, there might be a certain mystique in something like this because it’s a Bugatti but for others, well, I feel like there’s a lot of folks who would this over-engineering at its finest.
