Add on services

I recently had a minor service done at a local dealer ship which I have used since I brought the car in 2008. Vary rarely do I come away with out them recommending additional work. I have 7 items listed after this last services and I really wonder if they are all necessary. they are
induction service
Airtek service
Pas Coolant Flush
Brake Fluid flush
Wiper Blades
120000 service due
petrol On Car Injector Cleaning service.

If they are so important why aren't they covered in the log book services, particularly the brake fluid and the pas coolant fluid.

Can I have some opinions please.

Re: Add on services

I've owned 18, from new, Datsuns/then Nissans since 1976, and this upselling of servicing has greatly increased over the years. Initially, the suggestions actually bore some merit, but today, it's mostly money making by the dealer. A lot like "Would you like fries and a Coke with your burger."
Yes, I agree with you, if these add-on service items are so important to your cars running and/or safety why are they not included in the manufacturers recommended services?
Nowadays, after each service I simply say "No Thanks" smile and walk away with my keys. See you in 10,000k's.
