Question 2008 sti transmission dipstick installed onto 2013 sti transmission

So after looking in the engine bay on my 2013 sti for the transmission dip stick to check my transmission oil. I checked the manual. And surprise surprise, Subaru decided not to put one on the car anymore...

I've never heard of this so I started searching some. Apparently Subaru decided to remove this part from the sti a while back.

I checked every year's sti maintence manual until I found the most recent sti that still had the transmission oil dip stick. Turns out the 2008 sti did have this.

All the others from 2009-2013 (possibly 14, and 15) do not have the transmission oil dip stick.

My question is this, has the design of the transmission changed enough since 2008 to not allow me to order and install the 2008 sti transmission oil dip stick onto my 2013 sti?

Did you end up installing the 08' dipstick? I also have 13' sti and after a recent CF driveshaft install i want to keep an eye on the oil level..
