Default Oil dipstick

We bought my wife an A5 for her 50th in April and there is at least one thing I don't like - no oil dipstick. I know you can use the computer but I'm a traditionalist and want to "see" it. BTW, it is Sahara silver with the 2.0 an premium plus package. Our son has an '08 GTi with the same motor.

Anyone know if the dipstick from the GTI will work in the A5 and if not - any ideas on what to use? The dipstick tube appears to be different and the GTI one may hit the hood.

Its your head gasket the malibu is bad about that and mine did the same thing you need to stop driving it if the oil dip stick is dry then its very dangerous for your engine because engine is breath on the oil if oil stick is not dip properly then how is it possible that A5 engine is working well....
