The notch. If the car is any new indeed there should be an alternative oil level detection procedure available through iDrive.

Yes, I didn't mean exactly new. My 2013 car has both and dipstick is nearly impossible to use: I can't do that following the manual procedure meticulously - no level is seen, only the oily tip. But a BMW mechanic changing the oil did show me the dipstick level. The automated procedure is a savior.

And 97 e38 is a good-looking car, by the way!
