Alternative Dipstick?

I own a 2007 Mini R56 1.6 Cooper. The dipstick is equipped with a coiled metal design, which poses a considerable challenge in terms of readability, particularly when it contains fresh oil. Is it possible to use any dipstick from the 1.6 Mini range, or is it necessary to utilise the specific one?

Indeed, there is a simple method to interpret the readings. First, thoroughly dry the dipstick. Then, immerse it again into the substance being measured. Upon removing the dipstick, have a clean tissue ready. Place the dipstick on the tissue, and the point where the wetness starts indicates the oil level.

Correct Although I do own a Cooper, I believe I may have misunderstood your statement. I interpreted it as

"Just the Mini one." The Prince engine is unique. The correct interpretation of your statement is that the Mini One Prince engine is distinct from what you originally stated. I apologise.
