Brake Fluid Flush Necessary?

So my car is due for an oil change and brake fluid flush. I am wondering if it makes sense for me to pay to have the brake fluid flush done. The computer is telling me that my front brakes will be done in 6k miles and rears in 10k miles.

Does it make any sense for me to pay to have the fluid change now if I am going to need a brake job in 6k? I believe the last brake fluid change was two years prior. My car has 26.7k miles on it for reference.

BMW recommends changing the fluid ever 2 years. Change it now. The brake fluid is not typically touched when replacing brake pads and/or rotors.

Oh ok in that case I will. For some reason I assumed that the same service would be required when getting new rotors and pads etc.

You can get a brake fluid tester to check for moisture. It seldom needs to be changed, but doing it is a source of revenue for the dealer.

I just got a BMW service-specials email and I believe it had a "deal" on the brake fluid flush for $99.95, regular $127 here...not sure if you get those or not but worth looking into saving a few $$$.
