Yep, the dealer is just trying to sell stuff that's all. They offered me the same thing but my car is only at 15k miles. How did your SA determine the % of carbon buildup? Only way to tell that I could think of would be to use a 5-gas analyzer. Look at the emissions reading before and after the procedure at idle and at 2000rpm. Pay close attention to carbon and Nox readings.
