Fluid service on new to me m3

Going in tuesday for an oil change. Scheduled next monday for other service.

Car was low milage 4600miles but sitting for a year. I posted and it was recommended i do oil and coolant. Should i do a brake fluid swap as well? Also going to do a cabin filter swap as the air stinks. Anyone recommend a product to spray in the vents?

there's a spray called frigifresh that works well to kill the mildew smell from the vents.

I'd use this 1Z Air cleaner - works great!

I'd do all the fluids. Oil, transmission, diff, brake, coolant. There is no downside, only upside. It will be pricey but worth it.
