M2C: 12k Mile = Rear Diff Fluid??

Received a notice from the dealership that at 12k miles, my M2C requires a rear diff fluid swap. Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone done this?

I have personally done rear diff fluid swaps in other cars. Relatively easy. This seems to be applicable based on my quick search.

? How did the notice come to you, email, message in I drive, snail mail?
I was thinking if having the diff and tranny oil changed at the 20k mile service. This is the first I've heard of BMW requesting diff oil change at 12k miles. Anyone else?

Seems too early.. If you did your first one during break in, I would wait longer till doing another. Looks like regular service interval is 50k miles/5 years. Attached is a maintenance interval schedule from M3/M4 forums that you might find useful.
