What kind of tune-up are you looking to do? Engine, suspension, brakes, paint?
And how much are you willing to spend?

Is there any visible oil leaking? How often do you have to add oil (miles driven) or none at all. Have you changed any spark plugs or coils? If not I recommend putting money aside for all 6 coils and spark plugs. Replacing them all at once when your car starts shaking and going into limp mode.

What about the water pump and thermostat have they been replaced? I would set aside money for that.

Put money aside for a belt tensioner with belt. Which I recommend changing after 100k miles if it hasn't starting getting bad before that.

Recommend you change engine oil every 7-9k miles.

Don't forget your engine filter. I recommend changing it to a K&N hi-flow drop in filter. (It's washable and can get a few extra HP). While you're changing the filter I recommend you cut out the carbon filter. It's the one that you can't take out. Take out the maf sensor so you don't get it dirty.

If you have money leftover I would change the differential fluid.

Other then that you are pretty much golden.
Also you don't have to buy oem parts, you can buy aftermarket that will save you a bunch.

if you're itching to do some maintenance to the car, you can just do the 100k services a little early.

- trans and diff fluid change,
- coils and spark plugs

Yes.

Serp. belt, filters, hell, i'd even do water pump and thermo just as preventative (which I did do around 65k).
