Just purchased an oil measuring stick for my 2004 C230 Kompressor. The dipstick tube has a lot of bends in it. The dipstick is a little difficult to get in. However I think I reached bottom. My measurements with a cold engine are 115 mm at the bottom. The top of the dipstick tube lined up with the stick at 675 mm. Can anyone verify this? Incidently I purchased the stick at the dealer Part # W120 589 07 21 00. I was originally quoted at $137, but when I picked it up I was only charged around $80. Still outrageous but not as bad as the original price.
