Better Than The Stock MINI Dipstick
It's a Quick Read
We created our Dipper to read just like the stock one. The lowest groove indicates you need to add approx. 1 quart of oil, the middle point indicates about 1/2 quart of oil, and the top groove means your oil is full.
Fits Almost All MINIs
Our second gen model fits all prince N14 and N18 engines. That means if you have a Countryman, Clubman, Coupe or Roadster it does not matter if it is a base, S or JCW model this dipstick will be perfect. Some goes for any hatchback MINI Coopers from 2007 to 2014 and convertibles from 2009 to 2014.
If you have a first generation MINI, then we can only supply a dipstick if you have the supercharged S or JCW model. It's nothing against the 'Justa Coopers,' only that there are not as many around these days!
Disclaimer Alert! Oven mitts should never come into the equation, but please be careful touching anything that close to your Turbo!

I have had 4 Minis and have struggled with the dip stick. I have heard of some breaking off inside. The CravenSpeed dipstick is a work of art. Very functional and easy to read. This product is a must for all Mini owners. Worth the cost and is much better than the repair bill if you break the OEM stick inside.

Not having to worry about chunks of plastic floating around in my engine oil is priceless! As flimsy as the spring shaft is, it works perfectly for this application! I can't believe how easily it slides in and out of the dipstick tube. Although this is easier to read than stock, it's still very hard to read with new oil. I don't know that there is a good answer for this, but it wouldn't keep me from buying this part. I'm very impressed with the high quality materials and construction of this dipstick. Thank you CravenSpeed!

I'm only giving this dipstick 4 stars because I've only had it installed for a few days.
I will however state that the instructions for instillation and reading the dipstick are stellar.
When initially installing the dipstick , my immediate thought was boy this is going to be a hassle inserting it as its so flexible, but I was WRONG!!!! After you get it past the bend in the tube it just falls in, gravity just takes over and bam you are at the O-ring, I was a little worried about the O-ring because of the very tight fit, but with a little push it seals up great.
Reading the dipstick is a breeze and with minimal light you can easily tell your level.
This dipstick will be my dipstick of choice for every mini I ever own.
I especially like the fact that I am no longer worried about the plastic end fracturing or chipping off into my oil like I was with the original dip stick. Plastic becomes brittle and will fail after time under any condition, not to mention the heat conditions it is exposed to in a motor.
I am so glad this one doesn't have any plastic that comes into contact with the oil.
No more worries about foreign material potentially ruining my engine due to a dip stick.
Yeah Craven speed!!!!!
I look forward to purchasing more Craven speed products to enhance my mini.

I agree with the last reviewer, a flatter end would be even easier to see.
I was amazed this flexible thing slid in so easily!
As it says on the box, the handle is hotter than the OEM, but not the stick itself, maybe because it is a coil.

The new Craven Speed Oil Dipstick came rolled up in a small box which surprised me.
It seemed flimsy but was I WRONG!
It slides in the oil tub as smooth as can be.
I just changed to oil so with clean oil it's not as easy to read the oil level with my old eyes. For fresh oil a wider or flatter end might make it easier to read or maybe even white.

It is way more flexible (floppy) than the stock unit, it will (does) take two hands to guide & support this dipstick into position and back out during oil level checks. The billet handle will get glove needing warm too. It defiantly is easier to read than the stock unit, I just wish it was as sturdy (stiff) as the stocker.

If you really love your MIni, you should give her only the best!

So much easier to read that the OEM dipstick. Highly recommend this one over the stock unit.

The OE stick was nearly broken in half. The cravenspeed one is made out of metal and is much easier to read. Definitely worth the price difference over another OE stick. Thanks.

This is the dipstick that BMW should have designed for the MINI! Well designed, quality construction, and very easy to read so there's no more scratching your head trying to figure out where your MINI's oil level is at! Though it is pricey, it is a good investment in keeping your MINI healthy and happy!
