No Major Issues

Browsing through all of these threads, I have yet to see a major electrical or mechanical repair on these cars that most seem to run into and complain about (beside the HPFP which has seemed to calm down on the latter series vehicles). On other forums I paruse due to my other vehicles' issues, it's all about every different problem you can think of and the cars are of the same vintage as ours. So what I have become of aware of to this point is:

-I may have to replace my mechatronic sleeve (can do myself!) down the road for a
leak.
-If I go beyone 120K and my HPFP fails I will have to replace myself which I have a
link to a DIY for saved (looks easy enough).
-Tires are expensive.
-Turbos will eventually go out (but my SA repaired my waste gate acuators under
a TSB which may or may not help extend life...IDK). These seem the most pricey
potential replacements at 7K.
-electronic waterpump may go out around 80-100K (and is also a DIY and separate
from the inside of the timing cover and easy to replace but unit is pricey).
-Need to replace my spark plugs around 45K (easy).
-do oil and filter changes more frequently yourself.
-EXPENSIVE Battery replacement is possible at one point and a little complex!
-Transmission filter and drain needs done at approx 100k (there is a DIY on You Tube
and kit available for around $250.

From the cars I've owned over the years, these issues seem normal and I have done more and harder ones. Anyone have any other common more complex and pricey repairs that can lay you flat on this bad boy?
