2010 Volkswagen GTI: Checking The Oil

August 20, 2010

I examined our GTI's oil level this morning and it checks out OK. However, the dipstick is made out of a dark-colored metal. I'm not sure why VW chose to have it this way as spotting the exact oil level is a lot harder than it is on a regular dipstick made with a brighter metal.
