Ouch! And to go along with the oil change, the tires are $42,000 and changed every 2,500 miles and IIRC you change the wheels at the 4th tire change for $120,000.
As a friend of ours used to say, "rich or poor, it's nice to have money."

If you can afford a 1.7m car, you should have no problem paying 20k for an oil change.

For $1,700.000, the oil changes for life should be included.

So when it's all over and done with, I wonder: a) What brand/weight of oil is used and b) how many quarts.

Remove rear brakes, grill, 16 drain plugs, and under carriage to change oil? Sounds just stupid to me...Poor design IMO...

It's designed for huge HP and top speed....not so the grease monkeys at Jiffy Lube can change it a bit easier....many supercars have very complicated oil change procedures.
