What else while I'm at it...

Hi everyone. My radiator has recently developed a leak so I will be replacing it along with the expansion tank and thermostat. Just as preventative because the car just hit 150k. Will also be doing pulleys and ofhg. I was wondering if there's anything else I should go ahead and knock out while I'm in there? Vanos seals maybe?

Water pump and hoses, you're pretty much doing the cooling system already

If vanos seals havent been done, then it's strongly suggested
