Dealership Charging to transfer maintenance?

so, just dropped off my pre-owned (2nd owner) 2016 M3 for service for the 2nd time at the same dealership.

the first time, it was just an oil change and no issues with being second owner and they performed the maintenance with zero questions and most importantly, no cost to me.

An hour ago, I dropped the car off for the 25k mile or so service and a problem with the M3 projector emblem cracking. the M3 projector is free die to warranty. however, they are asking I pay $700 to transfer the maintenance package else pay the $1400 for the maintenance.

maintenance is:
1. spark plugs - $579
2. air filter cartridge - $384
3. replace brake fluid - $180
4. oil change - $199

obviously, it's cheaper to pay $700 to transfer but am curious if the above service is all required at 26k miles

looking for others experience and feedback.

Warranty transfers but free maintenance does not. See “Non-Transferability” at bottom of linked page:

The maintenance items sound reasonable for the age and miles of car. See posts 3 and 11 in this thread:

I didn't even look at the prices... just the items. That does seem to exclude lube on the filters.

I'd just pay the $700 to transfer.
