My Ex is at the dealer right now getting some warranty work done and the SA calls me to let me know the 15k mile fuel injector cleaning is recommended. Seriously? Is this normal? I've never heard of that frequent interval on my German cars. What do you think?

Seems a bit early to me, especially with the detergent ridden fuels we have these days. But hey, I'm no expert :)

Of course, if they are offering to do it for free... ;)

Never heard of it at 15k. 30 maybe. Me thinks dealer money want.

No free lunch for this service. Also recommending an in-cabin microfilter. These are things that I usually see at 30k and sometimes per year.
