It's 12,525 from your current mileage. So, what is your current mileage? I drive pretty conservatively as well and my first inspection is due in about 3900 miles from my current 20k miles. From what I've gathered, most inspection I are done somewhere around the 25k mile mark, which is reasonable. Getting inspection I at the 30k mile mark means that you will have to average approx. 23mpg over the entire life of the car, which I'm not sure even gramma can achieved.

I have to agree that getting it on records for car fax is meaningless and isn't worth the extra cost or hassle to have it serviced at the dealer. You should be just fine as long as you have all the documentation that the service have been performed.
