dip stick

  BMW F31
is it just me or does anyone else think that where they placed the dip stick (right under the fuel rail guard) is a stupid f**king idea as its a total b**ch to get at.

took me five mins to find it the other day, was expecting like most cars for an easily noticeable yellow stick but it looks impossible to reach easily.

is the 172 like this as well? i dont see how i can easily get it out without touching the bay with oil etc. just seems stupid. :S
172 is just as annoying the 1.6 is a 2.0 engine just stuch in a wash basically and shrunk.

If you want to see a difficult one have a look at a Williams or 1.8 16V.
