New car, suggestions?

Okay, I just came into possesion of a very nicly taken care of 1992 BMW 325is. The previous owner did a fantastic job at maintaining it and it shows now. The car has 133,xxx miles on it, and i was just wondering, considering he did not change ANYTHING, what should i replace/readjust/check? If its possible, a full list would be great, because i want to make sure this car stays in tip-top condition. It is still on the original clutch, and it feels great to me, so i am going to put that off for a little while, untill i am sure the other odds and ends are all set. I am a worry head, and this is my new baby, so i just want to be able to keep the peace of mind that it wont just stop running because i forgot to change something. Anyways, thanks for the info ^^

Nothing? i mean i know you have answered things like this before, and i have read the specific forums, i was just thinking, maybe the 92' has some other common problems or parts that should also be looked at, maybe weak/known to fail things...

The '92 will have the same issues as other e36's. Your motor should be non-VANOS so thats one less thing to worry about. Many of the other issue were covered here:
