MINI Dipstick


Oil is important. Check it accurately with a dependable, easy to read, CravenSpeed dipstick.

  • Easy to read stainless steel sinker
  • Dual o-ring seal to protect from dirt and water
  • Machined, and assembled entirely in the USA!

Stock Status:

Better Than The Stock MINI Dipstick

  • The CravenSpeed Dipstick will never break (besides, if it did you know we would replace it!)
  • The stainless steel sinker has holes that catch oil making it very easy to read.
  • The flexible, stainless steel, spring that makes up the length of the stick will not get caught or break like the stocker.
  • Trade the yellow plastic for a Red Powder Coated aluminum handle for a substantially improved look.

It's a Quick Read

We created our Dipper to read just like the stock one. The lowest hole indicates you need to add approx. 1 quart of oil, the middle point indicates about 1/2 quart of oil, and the top hole means your oil is full.

Fits Almost All MINIs

Our second generation 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!

That's Hawt!

Disclaimer Alert!Oven mitts should never come into the equation, but please be careful touching anything that close to your Turbo!

    Nice craftsmanship, but a wet noodle 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2017

    The quality of the workmanship is excellent and it's far more easily readable than the factory dipstick, but handling it is like a floppy wet noodle. The main portion of the dipstick is a spring that's much floppier than the factory piece. The handle gets very hot, but that's expected when it's made out of aluminum.

    EXCELLENT!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2017

    Really good! Best replacement of OEM dipstick which sooner or later will get broken and it will be headache to recover the broken piece left into the hose... Very happy with it!!

    WAY TOO HOT! 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2016

    While I find this dipstick slightly better to read than the original, the red handle becomes so hot that it is impossible to touch without a pair of gloves or heavy padding. Certainly there must be a better material for the handle.

    Much better than OEM 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2016

    Much better than OEM construction, but does show different oil level compared to OEM. Full is top hole, but cravenspeed dip stick goes about 2 holes past add on OEM dip stick.

    Damn, This thing is Hot! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2016

    Major pet peeve with the mini is the oem dipstick. Why BMW uses such a ridiculous design is beyond me! After a year of ownership I bought the Craven Speed dipstick and it is a huge improvement. No guess work in reading the level but use care if engine is hot as the dipstick heats up as well. Definitely worth every penny though. Shipped to Canada in less than a week with the basic shipping charge. Thank you Craven Speed!

    cravenspeed mini dipstick review 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    I own a 2008 mini cooper s. My take on the dipstick is this...

    While the dipstick is easier to remove/replace, lacking some rigidity makes it harder to handle.

    I still don't know if my oil is low, full, or high.

    Its also over priced.

    Just do yourself a favor ... and buy it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    After purchasing an '06 MSC, I was struggling with the dipstick. Trying to get the factory dipstick in and out was just awful ... enter Cravenspeed! I've purchased other products from them for my F56, and have been super happy. This dipstick is honestly the best purchase I've made for my R53 - so easy to read, easy to get in and out ... just simply the best!

    Unbelievable improvement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2016

    Never could be sure of the oil level with the OEM dipstick. The Craven product is very easy to read and SO MUCH easier to insert and remove.

    Great stick 5 Star Review

    Easy to insert and pull, this dipstick is the best I've seen. Nice red handle matches my GP2 color theme too!!

    PERFECT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2016

    After finally figuring out my 2010 JCW eats oil and that the original dipstick is completely useless, i found a forum and people recommended this product - it's perfect, easy to insert, remove and see exactly how much oil is in the car, love it, thank you guys!!

  12. MINI Dipstick

    Why is this not in every car on earth? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2016

    This ditpstick has got to be the best idea for cars since brakes! I really don't understand why all car manufacturers wouldnt use this type of design for a dipstick. So flexible and no worry of bending the shaft. The only thing I would be remotely worried about is if some idiot checking your oil would PULL REALLY hard on it and stretch the spring? It is very accurate and you can actually see the oil on the end....ingenious!

    after 50 miles it got stuck, couldn't retrieve it, had to use tools to eventually remove it, contacted customer service and they gladly replaced it, told me they had this happened to a few customers before, got the replacement and I noticed is a slightly different design, not sure what thats about, kept my OEM dipstick because I feel I'm going to need it...

    Perfect upgrade over oem 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2016

    So much easier to read the oil level compared to the factor dipstick. Great product, should develop for other vehicles.

    NEW VERSION IS GREAT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2015

    The new version of the Mini dip stick is much easier to read then the previous or the OEM

    WAY better than the OEM dipstick - almost perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2015

    I'd actually give this 4.8 stars (I reserve 5 stars for products I don't see an easy way to improve.)
    In my previous vehicle (Ford F150 with 260 thousand miles on it) I was used to checking my oil at every gas-up. But with my MINI I was continually frustrated with how hard to read the original MINI dipstick was - to the point I'd often skip checking my oil. Then I found this product. This is SOOO much easier to read. Now I actually look forward to checking my oil. My only suggestion would be for the manufacturer to coat the handle with some sort of insulator. After driving it hard the handle can get blisteringly hot. You CAN wrap a rag or something around it when needed, but you gotta REMEMBER to in order for that strategy to pay off.

    Great product 5 Star Review

    Excellent upgrade to the existing dipstick. Fast delivery.

    the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    I have had problems with the original engine oil dip stick. So I bought a new one through auto zone. About $30.00 I do believe. Broke instantly in three places when I tried to put it in and pull it out. The biggest waste of money ever. I saw someone talking about the cravenspeed one Online ( when I was looking for another new one.) was a bit expensive for me, but the reviews I was reading convinced me. (Could not find a single bad one.) I am so glad I did get it. I have never said this about a part on a car.... but, I LOVE MY NEW CRAVENSPEED!!!!!!!! So easy to check the oil now. Thank you!!!!!!!!

    Wish I found this first 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    I purchased this dipstick after buying a 2004 Cooper S and found the dipstick was cracked in 4 places. Initially I went the cheap route and bought a Dorman for $14 off Rock Auto and after using it ONCE, it too was cracked in the same 4 places. I read on several forums this is a common problem and many folks suggested this Cravenspeed unit. The price is not even a factor when you consider what it would cost to remove broken plastic from your crankcase. The Cravenspeed is very high quality and it slid right in to the dipstick tube with no effort. I wish I would have found this part first and put my first $14 towards it because it is a fantastic part that plays a very important role in the maintenance and longevity of your car.

  21. MINI Dipstick

    Good so far 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2015

    Much easier to read with brand new oil. Haven't tried to check the oil once the engine got hot but did notice that the handle will get pretty hot.

  22. MINI Dipstick

    GREAT PRODUCT 5 Star Review

    Very substantial product, much better than OEM. Much easier to check the oil in my mini now!

    Best Dipstick Ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2015

    Purchased two Craven Speed dipsticks for my two MINIs. Intelligent design for accurate oil level measurement (over the factory one). The red handle adds a nice touch to my pristine engine bay. Never thought checking the oil can be so much fun. Highly recommend.

    Review of Craven Speed 2nd Gen Dipstick 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2015

    I certainly agree that the Craven Speed dipstick is of superior quality to the somewhat flimsy o.e. plastic handled, blade dipstick. It's much easier to insert and remove. Both IMO are difficult to read the actual oil levels but the Craven Speed is slightly easier with its delineated markings. I feel it's certainly more durable and not likely to ever break within the dipstick tube as the o.e. one is known to do. Not sure what would make it even easier to read the oil levels but improvements seem possible in that regard.

  25. MINI Dipstick

    They never told you... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2015

    Nowhere does Craven Speed tell you that this dipstick drops into the dipstick tube with no resistance. They tell you that you won't break it, but the fact that it slides down effortlessly goes unsaid. And yes, it's easier to use.

  26. MINI Dipstick

    Nice dipstick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2015

    I was recommended this dipstick because reading the stock dipstick can be difficult. Once mine arrived and I did the swap, I was impressed with how nice the Craven dipstick is, and disappointed at how cheap the stock dipstick is.

    No doubt, this dipstick is easy to read and high quality.

    Note to BMW: Make this the MINI OEM Dip Stick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2015

    This is a terrific upgrade! I purchased the Second Gen CravenSpeed MINI Dip Stick to get an accurate read of the oil level... something I could never achieve with the factory dip stick. The OEM dip stick is a design that is being miss-applied to the MINI engine. It appears BMW is trying to use a dip stick that was made for their other (older) engines (a similar design works fine in my 1989 325i). CravenSpeed's MINI dip stick works as advertised. It is a bit expensive, but the alternatives are much costlier!

  28. MINI Dipstick

    Wish I had bought it sooner 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2015

    NEVER let your OEM dipstick get to the point that I did, where it breaks off inside the guide tube (R53 Mini). I'm a decent wrench, but it still took me four hours to put the front end in "service mode" and get the tube out, then put it all back together.

    The only possible negative about this dipstick is that it is expensive enough that I hesitated buying it for about a year until mine broke. I knocked of one star for that.

    after market mini dipstick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2015

    I had extreme difficulty reading the original dipstick and bought a craven dipstick. It was the exact same length as the original and was very easy to take in and out. It was real easy to read which is the most important feature.

  30. MINI Dipstick

    OMG what an improvement! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2015

    The original design sucks in comparison to Craven's design, which I find incredibly bad. There's really no comparison. If you see any issues at all inserting or removing the original dipstick from a mini cooper S, then you need to get this. It's well worth it.
