Spark plugs

I have a 2012 BMW X1 and I am about to change the spark plugs as it has a little over 90,000 km on it and a mechanic recommended I run a can of Sea Foam through the gas tank to clean any carbon of the lower part of my spark plugs before attempting to remove my old plugs. He said it will save my threads on my cylinders head has anyone heard of this I always thought make sure engine is cold before pulling plugs.

Just bought an X1 35i MSPT with 57,300KM (35,800mi approx). Just wanted to know some of your thoughts in terms of the maintenance.

Should I do the plugs as preventative ?

So at this mileage now what do you guys suggest. Just had the oil & filter and microfilter done. Im doing the rear brakes today so at the same time should I do the Brake Fluid? I know BMW says the tranny fluid is "lifetime" but we all know that is complete bs... Anything guys?

I never used seafoam and never had a spark plug issue on my vehicles.
