I suspect that they have gone away for the simple reason that the average American BMW owner can not be trusted to check the oil level once in a while. And with a 15k oil change interval that leaves the very real possibility of running the car out of oil. So we get an electronic system to warn when the car needs oil. Given that, there is little need for a traditional dipstick.

Or to put it another way, there are enough dipsticks out there who can not be bothered to lift the hood of their car once a month that the mechanical variety is going away.
