Mini One dipstick

My dipstick on my Mini One 2002 has broken off. Can anyone recommend where I can buy a new one at a reasonable price?

The metal bit needs to be removed very carefully......if it drops in the sump it is a big job to remove it and if you run the engine could also cause damage!

just buy one at BMW worry more about getting the old one out rather than where to get a new one it can wreck your engine.

Mine just broke a few months ago. Got a genuine Mini replacement from Ebay for about $25 shipped.
