Lokar makes nice ones but they're expensive.
I usually just end up running the $8.00 chrome ones, just put some sealant around it where it seats in the block, they tend to come loose pretty easily.

The dipsticks and tubes are cheap right from the GM dealer a decent parts guy will just need to know if it is drivers or passenger side dipstick, I think it was like 20 bucks or so for both when I needed to order them for mine.
