Okay, on the dipstick, you have two hard to see "circles" molded into the dark brown plastic... Then you have two "indentions" on the dipstick....

The question is -- do you use the circles to check the upper and lower oil levels, or do you use the indentations where the dipstick actually gets narrower, as the upper and lower marks?

FWIW, my '97 M3 with 56k miles on it hasn't lost any oil on this oil change, even after 3200 or so miles of semi-spirited driving (although there is a ton of highway driving in there, too)...
