Oil Dipstick on G30 M550xi

Was having a discussion with another member and though others would maybe not know this info

Since the G11 7 Series the N63 V8 has a oil dipstick again. (Arrow and number 22 below)
The G30 M550xi engine picture shows it has aswell

This is in addition to the electronic sensor.

Makes sense on an engine that burns so much oil.

I hope it doesn't take long before BMW starts using the new 4L V8, and I hope that engine is more durable, reliable, and doesn't burn a lot of oil.

I consider any N63 derivative to be lease-only, and I'm tired of leasing...

Alternatively, a purely electric G30 would be nice too!
