Default Should I bother with the 15k Dealer Service?

I'm about 1500 miles from 15k and the dealership has been hounding me through the mail to bring it in for the service.

Now from what it looks like in the manual... they just "inspect things" then change the oil and all the normal stuff.

Is this worth the $150 they want to charge me? I'm thinking the only thing that would be done is them draining my good moble 1 oil that I just put in it for dino oil....

air filter
oil filter
make sure your car isn't falling apart, smoking, doing crack, and doesn't need brakes/pads.

top off your fluids. call it a day.

there, you've officially done your 15k service. the fun starts at 30k

Air filter is optional at 15k; change it only if you are in a dusty area.

15k service should be just oil, filter, tire rotation, check fluids and operation of various items. $150 is way too much. Obviously don't dump the synthetic you just put in. While the wheels are off, check the brake lines, CV joints etc. for anything loose or damaged. Also check the inner sidewall of the tires and look at the treads carefully for embedded objects or unusual wear.
