Dipstick explanation from MB dealer
I was advised that the dipstick that you could buy, for about $ 60.00, was not permanent, but a shop tool only.
The reading of the stick is also a bit different, as the markings on stick are compared to a chart to determine oil level reading, depending on car's engine.
So....you could check the oil periodically, but stick stays in your garage or possibly in the trunk I suppose.
