100k mile service

So I am coming up on 100k. I have a few things planned out for service. The Bentley manual says just plugs and transmission fluid. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to do the filter for the transmission (yes I know I will be buying a new pan to get the filter), differential fluid, oxygen sensor, and coolant.

So I guess mainly would I be wasting my time and money doing the other items I was thinking of doing?

Also if there are other things you guys may have done when you hit 100k or that anyone can think of I should do can I get some suggestions as well? thanks in advance for the input.

Garage List
I would do everything listed here that hasn't been done in the last interval of recommended miles.

I would especially go after the water pump. From what I hear, there's little to no warning when it fails, just some shadow codes.

Isn't the fuel filter non replaceable? Damn I didn't expect to do coolant hoses and water pump. Haha I guess I will go through with all that. Any other suggestions?

Also how do you drain all Yeh tranny fluid? So that means even the torque converter.
