      a lot of people are talking about changing the wheels and tires, but in reality you can not. those are the ONLY wheels and the ONLY tires you can/should put on this car.
      i have 2 in my cousins/sisters/uncles/brothers/nephews shed somewhere out in korea.

      Fuel expenses are the last thing on the mind of somone who owns a Veyron, let alone someone who would consider modifying one.

      true but not my point...car is fast enough as a street car and a track car...fuelling adjustments would make the car more of a pain in the ass you would be driving from one gas station to the next...weight reduction is all that is truely needed for this car.

      You can spend your millions on weight reduction. I'll spend some of mine on power adders too.

      at 4162 pounds and 1000 hp and already soaring to 60 in 2.8...where does it honestly seem the car is lacking? weight.

      this whole argument is funny. only a gangster ass dude would take out the back seats in his Veyron lol. i would never touch it. i would just be that guy with a veyron. and when you actually have a car that's worth almost 1.5 million dollars, you let me know if you actually want to void the warranty, b/c we all know how stingy vw is with their warranties ..... the trick answer is if i could mod perfection... i wouldnt.

      You are correct my friend it is funny...it's also funny to think a supercar capable 250+ mph would come with a backseat. get a clue.

      no no no, you get a clue man. it's obvious that i was being sarcastic.
      i'm all about leaving the weight that your car comes with as is. weight reduction is silly unless it's a track car. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      LOL, a person who can't see the benifits of weight reduction even for a daily driver is just plain blind. Weight reduction equals quicker car, better mpg yada yada yada...it is possible to shed pounds from overweight cars (Veyron +4000lbs) and get substantial benifits...read this thread from the TT forum about shedding pounds and not losing any of the benifits of the car. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3782261 post over there and fill people in as to why it is stupid to reduce the weight of a DD.

      Rip off the body panels and replace them with new ones that aren't ugly.
      Wait, better yet, replace the whole car with a new one that doesn't weigh 2 tons.

      With 1001 hp, I'd say 4000 lbs isnt that bad. An E36 M3 weighs more than that and is still a very well performing vehicle at a measley 240 hp.

      I stopped in to the my local Bugatti dealer the other day and drooled on the floor model they have.
      The dealer came out and BS'd with me for a few. The maintenance on these bad boys is out of freaking control.
      Oil Change: $12,000
      First Scheduled Maintenance: $75,000 ($60,000 of which is for the TIRES)
      And they have a monitoring system that knows if you turn that second key. They will know, they will call you to let you know that they know, and then they will immediately VOID your warranty.
      That system also tracks each and every car. They know where you are and how fast you are going at all times.

      well you could always weld a big can of folgers onto the back of it, the honda guys are convinced that will give you a serious boost in power. Oh and you could slap layers upon layers of stickers on it too thatll give you at least another 500 hp to the ground but seriously why would you modify something thats perfect? to make it..... less perfect?


      The bumper sticker on my friends car adds like 250 horses at least...

      I'm still waiting for an answer on the whole weight thing of the E36...or any M3. I thought there was enthusiasts in here...

      why do they void your warranty when they already give the second key to you in the first place?

      in the realm of mods for the veyron, hennessy is actually developing an exhaust system upgrade. not much in the way of details on their website, but theres a link for it.

      It could be interesting if they made a track version.
