I can't believe that MB makes it so tough for folks that want to see oil on a dipstick. Don't know about you guys, but I use the dipstick for other things, too. (Like whipping the magpies in the yard...just kidding) I like to SEE the oil. I can judge it's colour and condition and look for things like coolant.
Are people really "done" with the oil level dipstick?
