Nice to finally see this option finally!

I'd pay twice that if it actually works and works reliably. I hate hate hate the electronic gauge.

But $225 worth of accuracy is better than $25K for a new engine

Wow...did not know this even existed. I'll be fitting one of these soon. The electronic meter on my car changes more often than the weather.

Saw this a while back. I would do it if I bought an E90 M3.

Thought this thread title was a joke until I followed the link lol

Very cool find! I'll be doing this the first time I need to drop the oil pan for any other work. Thanks for the link.

Thanks for the link. Finding an electronic "dipstick" was an ugly shock to an otherwise wonderful introduction to the world of M3's.

No problem. I agree, I was disappointed as well. I like to smell, look and sometimes taste my oil
