2011 335i - oil dipstick replacement?

Alas, I had my oil changed but the tech lost or forgot to put back my oil dipstick.

I could smell burning oil when I stopped at red lights and checked under the hood and the dipstick was gone.

I know dipsticks are not universal sizes. Does anyone know what length replacement dipstick I need?

Thanks!

I tried the OEM site but it doesn't list the engine oil dipstick as a "part". AdvanceAutoParts did t have a clue either.

Electronic oil level , no dipstick. Leaking valve cover gasket or the oil filter housing gasket or the oil cooler gasket on the OFH.

There is no oil dipstick -- what are you looking at?

The car did not have a digstick. As someone mentioned you likely need a gasket repaired.
