The car comes with this great warranty package when bought brand new..

We cover all factory-recommended maintenance at no charge for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, as well as specific items that require replacement due to normal wear and tear.

Your maintenance costs:

Engine Oil Services: $0
Inspection Services: $0
Wiper Blade Inserts: $0
Brake Pads: $0
Brake Discs: $0
Engine Drive Belts: $0
Brake Fluid Service: $0

plus on board computer tells you the oil level. why get your hands dirty when you can see it through the cluster instrument.

I don't see the importance of the dip stick..

what other car company has this sort of great warranty?
With a dipstick, I can check the quality of the oil. Because of a dipstick I got early warning that a manifold gasket was starting to leak. There were no warning lights, but I could see small amounts of water on the dipstick.For more info I suggest you search as there have been a bunch of threads on this topic.

This thread is for people to list their wish list of items they'd like to see on the next gen 3-Series. Let's not hijack it by questioning/criticizing people's wish list.
