I took a closer look at my old dipstick under a magnifier. Saw two cracks where the rod goes into the tip. May have dodged a bullet there.

Yeah you can even see the cracks on your alignment picture. You were very close to the breaking point.

Same here, it feels very sturdy. What's even better is the ECS dipstick doesn't stress on the bends in the tube at all.

Really? It's still showing as "Limited Quantity" on their website.

I just placed an order for another one yesterday and is in shipping - hopefully, 2nd time's a charm

Site was showing limited quantity but when I tried to add it to my cart, an error message appeared to say it was out of stock.

In any case, I just checked again and it's now back in stock but at a higher price

Ordered it this afternoon and it said it would ship 11/29.
While I was paying for the order the delivery info updated to shipping today, 11/23.
Just got an email saying it shipped.

I can only find the polished one. Would love a black one if I have the choice.

There's no good way to say this, so I'l just say it.
It slides in nice and easy, but the tip catches a little when pulling it out.

Still better than stock, and easier to read.
All in all, I'm pleasured.
I mean pleased.
