Two thoughts come to mind. Let your oil get dirty and then you can see it easier. LOL. Or maybe you could drill a serious of small holes in the center of the dipstick to easily check it that way if you have that equipment and skillset.

It is hard to see, I use my glasses and try to get it in just the right light.

Yea the small holes would for sure weaken the plastic on the stick

A plastic dipstick? Really! Sorry it was an idea for a normal steel one. Well I guess this is my last post on a non-owned car. Sorry to disappoint!

Just find someone with a 3d printer and see about getting a custom dipstick made.

The dipstick sucks, the old school black metal sticks were much easier to read. Would be nice if someone came out with a replacement...
ive ordered a dipstick like in my sons 2017 rspec, im going to mark it to match the rmax stick and just have it on hand for checking the level.
