Hi and welcome from Virginia. You're correct, no oil dipstick on the SLK 55. Check with dash menu.

Welcome from NE England. If you don't trust the electronics (and there is no reason why you shouldn't) you can buy a dipstick for it.

Welcome from southern Californa. Do a search on getting into the Dyno mode for the SLK55, in there you will find a way to check engine oil level (on level surface of course) measured in liters/quarts.

Welcome from Indy to you AND your father!
And, correct, these cars never have electrical problems...

And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!
