There must be another suitable oil dipstick

Here you go
I've had a proper look today, removed the air intake hose was in the way and I've found the 2nd oil tube. It was covered with a soft plastic cap, but isn't blocked off like on later models and checked with the remaining of the original dipstick, there is oil down that tube, so I guess I can use that to check oil level :)

For AUA the polo dip stick works perfect ...just take out the lock where you pump out the oil and install the dip stick instead, 5 minutes

Dipstick: 030115611R (ca. 8€)
Funnel: 030115636A (ca. 2€)

These are Audi prices, aftermarket is much cheaper

Hi, I've looked those part numbers but there's rather a few options and different prices online as well, many says "similar" too. Can you please send a link which is the exact oil dipstick I need, don't want to end up with a wrong size, thanks a lot.

It's all the same because it's build in a lot of models from Audi Skoda Seat VW. They are all identical, you can use any of those, if the number I posted is included.

Hi all, I've received both parts now, funnel and dipstick, both fit a great! What a difference! I can see the level like it should be as the dipstick is a flat metal, not rounded. Only issue is, the level shows like 0.5 inch below minimum..The car shows OK when I start the engine, only when I take a sharp corner bit faster, the flashing red symbol comes up for a few seconds. Should the sensor pick that low level up at start too? I have a very slow coolant leak, which ends on the oil sensor though.
Otherwise it's a recommended mod, if your engine has the second tube, as you can read the accurate oil level at first. Thanks
