It also makes it hard to gauge oil quantity when changing oil outside of warranty (I'll NOT be paying for oil changes after warranty since I can save more than half of my money DIY while still using OEM filters and LL-01 oil).

Furthermore, every time I have ever checked my oil level digitally it has told me that I have exactly the "max" quantity, right at the line. I find this hard to believe after the amount of oil that has gone into and come out of my car.

Why trust a computer when I can know for certain just by popping the hood?
+1 but we are not old fashioned, we are correct fashioned.
