Approaching 150K miles..

My 2003 BMW 325i 2.5L is approaching 150K miles rather quickly. Getting new tires and an alignment this fall - thats minor maintenance, but I believe I'll be due for new shocks and springs. I had put a new timing belt in as well as a new water pump just last summer. Anything else I should consider replacing soon or getting checked out?

It is best to follow the owner's manual for vehicle maintenance. If you don't have one you should be able to download a PDF-file online.
