Default MMI oil level vs actual

Just had my first oil change today, Level used to be right at the top on the MMI display, now it's down a bit (At least it's not overfilled).
I was curious to see how this translated to the actual level difference, so I measured it again with my homebrew dipstick, and the actual level change was about 2mm.

Give the MMI system a couple days to catch up and provide an accurate display - - it takes some driving for it to accurately gage the level.

You're right. Next day, the MMI display was at the top line

What’s a “home brew” dipstick? I hate not having a real dipstick in my S5 SB (or my Porsche for that matter).

yes please share this, is it a dipstick from the previous model that you have modified? I think I remember a post where you or someone cobbled one together. I went into therapy for no dipstick and it didn't work. will need the real thing.
