Pretty hard to mess up reading a dipstick. I've also read BMW was worried that there is a little crankcase fumes escaping out the dipstick tube. I think drivers failing to ever check their oil might be another factor.

I wish they had left good enough alone. Messing things up for those of us who knew to look and knew how isn't appreciated by me, at least. But more and more it looks like I will have to refurb an old car or get used to all the nannys.
