Default Bugatti Veyron

Congratulations, you bought yourself a Veyron. May I interest you in a service plan?

To change the fuel tank $42000 (includes labour)
There are 4 turbos, $6400 each, labour $9000 (for a pair?)
4 camshaft position sensor $9 each (shared with Golf), labour $7200 (all 4).
Exhaust manifolds $2000 per side, labour $22000.
4 oxygen sensors <$300 (same as Passat), labour $15000
oil change? $20000-25000 (unconfirmed).

I suppose if you can afford a $1.7 million car, these prices are chicken feed. Regarding the $42k fuel tank swap, I've never owned a car worth that much.

I've never owned one worth one of the turbos.

money is relative. the more you have the more its worth is valued by 0's. if your a multi millionaire and something costs 2500 its like saying 25 to the average person. dont forget the tax rebates..

I think you could buy all the cars I've every owned for the $42000 needed to replace the Veyron's fuel tank.

I'd expect a $42000 fuel tank to last a few years, not need replacing with every major service.

I did, Rover 213S, was thinking to myself one day, no way the fuel tank holds this much and looked across the boot of the car to see a river of petrol running away across the forecourt.....
