Clutch and flywheel overhaul


My rear main seal has been leaking for a little while, so I decided to replace everything that I can in one shot.
I drive 2005 m3 cupe, with manual stransmission, the car has 104K miles.

I am planning on replacing the following:

Clutch with pressure plate.
Rear Main Seal
Shifter linkages
Motor and Trans mounts
Engine oil
Tran's fluid
Breakfluid flush

What else would be easy to replace while the trans is out?

Everything is oem, the car is a daily driver, I don't want to put any lightweight flywheel or extra gripy clutch that needs a new one every 100 yards.

Differential fluid if it hasn't been done.

Check your guibo and center support bearing while you're in there.
