Location of oil dipstick in a C230?

Hi all, first post here. I know it sounds like a foolish question, but when I visited my girlfriend out of state I did some basic maintenance to her '99 C230 Komp but couldn't find the oil dipstick. What I DID see was a little tube sticking up near the firewall and valve cover (passenger side). Is this where the missing oil dipstick goes? I'm I'm pretty sure that the '99 C230 still had a manual dipstick. I'm back home so I can't go there with a manual and check her car again.

Also, what would be the best place online to buy OEM Benz parts and have them shipped quickly to you door?

Thanks in advance!

good point :) but at least you get the 5 speed :( i have to ride down the highway at 3500-4000 rpm and the engine roaring haha.
The 4-speeds are awesome! if serviced properly, they last forever! Also, Benz engines are made to ride the highway like that, and plus, don't you like the added torque?
