I agree; I like the dipstick. The hole is small (small enough for me ("big  
fingers") to struggle a bit to get the dipstick out..., not ugly or a 
problem,  covered by the tunnel carpet and dead easy to check before going out on 
a run.  No need to get under the car.

1) Cut a nice, clean hole rather than an  ugly one <g>
2) Install a later gearbox (the 3 synchro boxes after  TS50,000 had a plug 
on the side).
3) Add a plug in the side.

#1  would actually be my choice, as I really like having the dipstick.  In  
fact, the TR6 gearbox in my TR3 has a dipstick  installed.
