Attention members of 100K club - what maintenance intervals did you do?

I am at 60k now and it seems with proper maintenance the NA cars can at least double that if not more. I was curious about the NA cars with over 100k what maintenance you did and how often, such as transmission fluid, oil changes, transfer cases, differentials, power steering, coolant, etc.
TIA!

oil changes every 7500 miles or sooner (basically half of bmw's recommended plan). will probably going to start doing it every 5 -6k now.

auto transmision and rear diff fluid change at 100k

spark plugs at around 100k

I've got a full set of coils, but haven't installed them yet. will probably wait until one starts acting up and then replace all 6.
did the brakes at around 75k (when they were needed) and put in fresh fluid.

Garage List
Personal view - I'd never leave the same plugs in for 100K. Half that at most if it was me...

I did them all around 60K and plan to do it again at 100K and not every 2 years.
