What color is your 560SEL dipstick?

According to the manual, the dipstick indicator should be "light blue gray". Mine is red. I just changes the oil and was careful to add exactly 8.5 qts, which put the level right in the middle od the indicators.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has a red dipstick indicator.

OT, but...

My 300E had a red dipstick that broke. The replacement dip that I purchased from the dealer was lime green and about a quarter inch shorter.

OK, thanks to all. I guess the manual is wrong.
