R56 Oil Checking

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a good "technique" for checking the oil on an R56, as I am aware of how difficult these dipsticks are to read. At the moment not really sure how much oil is actually in it. Its going for a dealer service next month but I don't really want to run around in it with low or no oil in until then.

I check mine from cold, so the oil is slightly thicker and shows on the dipstick. I hear cravenspeed do a great dipstick upgrade so you can see it better.

Yeah got the right technique now - from cold, remove dipstick and wait 5 mins for any oil up the tube to drop back down. Then dip it :)
