Sorry if this was discussed before, I did a search for oil level and didn't see any related topics. Also, I should note that the mechanic says that the dipstick corresponds to the physical amount of oil he puts in during an oil change.

I am a dipstick guy myself. My son thinks I am just a dipstick

Seems to me that trusting German electronics is rarely a good way to go if there is an alternative.
