This hot/ cold oil thing - I have a question. I usually change the oil in all my cars (STi, X5, TDI Jetta) plus a lot of cars before these.

I've never seen much if any difference checking the oil hot or cold - this is after letting the hot car sit for a bit so the oil returns to the pan. How much can hot oil expand - I've never thought it would be enough to show up on a dipstick.
