Isn't essentially this same motor in any number of BMW models? So there are millions of cars successfully running around the world without a dipstick. I agree it seems odd and I would rather have one than not but this thread isn't going to help anything.
Besides, isn't there a lengthy "minor gripes" thread from a little while ago that basically addresses all these items and more? (No dipstick, RFTs, cheap sun visors, useless cup holders, carbon build-up and as I recall the list went on and on)
