Free winter prep/checkup, worth it?

I got emailed a coupon from my dealer for a free winter prep where they check the fluids, brakes, tires, ect. My car only has 5500 miles (got it in May 06). Do you think it worth it to have it done?

Also they said they would provide a free loaner. I found that odd because it seems like they would only be checking few things, and how long could it take? However I would enjoy a loaner as long as it is a BMW, even if only for a few hours.

Also, what does the dealer stand to gain by offering this?

Sounds like your dealer is slow, the free check is a good thing....just be careful of the upsells. What dealer is it by the way?

It never ceases to amaze me how effective those free checks are. They always seem to find something in need of 'repair'.

Prestige on route 17 in NJ.

Being that this is my first Bimmer, I was wondering if it was great service or shady dealings. I guess it is the later.
