Re: dipstick marks

Ours is a 2011 TA and it has a gold colored dipstick and very difficult to read.
I'd prefer it if it was white so I could SEE the oil.

Mick.

Yes an old thread but it was the top hit for Twinair+dipstic. Fantastic pic and description still relevant to any TA newbee. I've re-attached the pic in case the O/P removes it from photobucket.

I was starting to wonder if the gauge was supposed to be attached to the end of the plastic rod on my Punto Twinair, and at the bottom of my sump.

The 2012 Punto handbook is also vague, and they didn't bother illustrating the lower end of the dipstick :S.

I was expecting something with min + max lines and crisscross hatching between.

Good to see they were white back in 2012 when my car was new too

Mine too is hard to read now it's gone golden, probably harder when I do the oil change soon.
