The modified dip stick is only a recent fix for the problem so you should be ok. Its not a recall yet but is a known fault.

What's so special about the new dipstick as mines had it and it does not look too radical

Mine came up after 1650 miles.

I'll book into Ford and see what happens.

The modified dipstick is because they have changed the quantity of oil. U will only get the dipstick fitted when they do a oil change

When they do the oil and filter they'll change the dipstick this time
