Will the M3 have a dipstick?

Will the M3 have a dipstick...for checking the oil I mean. I'm sure many will have one behind the wheel.

(Searched but didn't find the info)

Thanks

No. Only an electronic reader from the dashboard.

Yes, but not in all of the cars. If you look closely though you will notice several M3's have it placed squarely in the driver's seat

As EBuyuk says, it doesn't seem so. That sucks (or doesn't, actually) for those of us that like to change oil with a vacuum device.

checking oil is an important factor not to overlook, do you want that PERFORMANCE ENGINE too last?

check it at least once a week

Carlos> What if the level goes up and down unexplainably or your dealer lets it run too low after a service ?
