Maintenance Needed at 110k? 06 BMW 330i

I recently bought an 06 BMW 330i. I was was just wondering what maintenance I should be looking todo since Im rolling up to 110k miles. Last inspection was 12/2013. The last guy took very good care of it I know this because it clearly shows in looks and performance. I have a fairly detailed service record and carfax mostly oil changes and fluid changes but I have found some paper invoices of service not listed in any records that I have a copy of. So at this point there has been more done than what the service records show. Which isn't a bad thing I was just stating the fact.

Ive been researching and it was recommended to replace the water pump. Should I or should I wait till failure. The pump may have been replaced already is there anyway to tell without taking it out?

As far as fluid changes what should I be looking at. I plan on doing these myself so if anyone has any knowledge of what brand fluids I should use for best results please feel free to list them.

And I welcome anything else anyone may have in mind. I plan on taking really good care of the car and keeping this car as long as possible.

Also I am just looking into the future here for good tires to buy when that time comes around. Should I stick with RFTS or what do you recommend. (Again just for future knowledge my current tires have many miles left on them)

If you could list the cost with your suggestions that would be greatly appreciated so I can keep better track of what Im looking at here.

Recent acquisition? Replace all fluids as a PM. Other'n that, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, unless on Mr. Miller's PM schedule.

There. Cheers!

Suspension bushings and mounts.

Lifetime fluids like diff, coolant, power steering, and trans.

Mike Miller's recommendations (similar to my own, I have supplemented with a number of items not addressed by him at all)
About 60,000 miles: water pump, thermostat, serpentine belts, tensioner pully belts (alternator, AC, etc)
About 90,000 miles: radiator, expansion tank, fan and fan clutch if so equipped
About 100-150,000 miles: all coolant and fuel hoses; control arm bushings
Mike Miller does not address this: Don't forget AC hoses and power steering hoses

BTW, on my last car (E46 with 135k) in the last 30k miles the water pump and thermostat and AC tensioner pulley, radiator expansion tank, control arm bushings, and power steering hoses all had to be replaced...not proactively, but because they were failing! So attention in these areas is not 'preventative' but may be required to keep your car running.
