Good temporary fix, I will post the solution of the dealer once I bring the car in on Feb. 20, hoping it will be a more permanent fix and enable the roof to open without hindering the fix.

Thanks for the feedback, I don't know why they make the dipstick so difficult to read, on other brands it is so clear? I will do just that, add a little at a time until full!

Sport mode
