2011 528 Coolant Red Dipstick missing

Hello Folks,
I bought a 2011 518 and my low coolant indicator came on yesterday. When I opened the Coolant box, I did not see a Red dip stick that floats up. I did see some min/max yellow plastic thing on bottom. When I looked at the manual, it didnt state anything about the floater. But when I called BMW, they stated there should be.

Any confirmation would be great.

I have the 2011 528 and just had the radiator and expansion tank replaced. I never saw any stick in the expansion tank, only the yellow indicator.

No stick.
