no engine dipstick

i think the most stupid think bmw maker did is when they removed the engine dipstick , the benz maker did not remove it neither many luxury cars , i did send many emails to them , no reply , we have 2 bmw , 7 series and 6 series, 2 of them have malfunctions in reading oil level , i took it to agent and found no problem with sensors, one day i heard noise from engine which i know what is it and looked at display and looked ok and full oil level , i immediately shut it off , and i added more oil, around 4 litters , the noise gone and took it to maintenance and changed oil ,
you cannot trust electronics in critical issues like oil level or water level , any malfunction will cause expensive repair which is not worthily saving the stick
