If you have a SkyActiv automatic, there is no transmission fluid dip stick. I know because I was hearing a strange noise from my transmission and thought I would check the fluid level, so I looked for the same non-existant dip stick. It turns out I had a problem, the dealer replaced my transmission at 44K miles under warranty (2012 M3 touring automatic)
