So, does anyone have any idea where "Full" is under the proper conditions, from the top of the tube? Audi wants like 60 USD for a dipstick. The way I see it you can buy, or borrow one from another vehicle providing it is the long enough to make it past the "Full" length. Since it is not a daily check for most, if some one put the measurement out there it could save thousands in members pockets to not need to order the replacement.
