$46K+ for an oil change.

So, why not just have a staff mechanic that is certified and forget the airplanes all together. I guess it's just a vanity thing.

Eh, if he wanted to keep his warranty, then it needs to be serviced at a Lambo service center.

Same thing when I had my VW. I just didn't have to go 6,500 miles to the nearest dealer.

Or, hopefully, pay around seven thousand bucks (US) for the service.

umm wrong ... In the US you can have your car ,bike, boat serviced wherever you want. You can even do your own service and it will not void the warranty.See Tie in sales section
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/.../warranty.shtm
I have this saved on my puter because the idiots at HD and Dodge love to say "It will void your warranty if you do_____ "fill in blank.

I know this is from another country but dont let VW or anyone else tell you that line of BS here
