New owner- 2003 530i, suggestions please

I am a new owner of a good condition 2003 e39. I am looking for suggestions on what routine checks and maintenance I should do for it being at 93k miles. Seller says he serviced it with oil change done and put a new valve cover gasket. Car drives great and everything seems as good as he described it. I want to learn and do DIY maintenance on basic stuff. I have had good learning experience with my camry so hopefully that will help alongside all the good DIY threads here. I plan to go HID for the lights and would like to know what's the best option. Should I change all fluids at this time? If not which ones? What about water pump and timing belt? Wow...lots of questions and lot to learn. I hope to enjoy it all.
