Any idea whether later builds (mine is a 2009, built late in 2008) no longer require this service? Or is the dealer just wrong?
Dealer = wrong. Changing the engine oil and the final drive only (and not the transmission oil) is how the 1200 used to work for the S54 MZ4s and E46M3s. That is not correct for the S65M3s. I think they are confusing models in your case.
