Subject: new used car service advice

I have owned my 2001 9-3 for 3 months. It has 81K miles. I have done the following since I bought it in the hopes of getting it in adequate shape for another 80K: I do not know the former owner's service schedule (but the car looks brand new, so I'd like to think that it was serviced according to plan). 0-40 Mobil 1 that I ran for 1000 miles, then flushed and replaced again with 0-40 M-1 which I will now replace every 3 or 4K. Radiator coolant flushed and replaced. Transmission fluid changed. Fuel filter changed and injector cleaning. Serpentine belt changed. Anything else I need to be thinking of? The only thing that comes to mind is the automatic transmission fluid, but I'm not really mechanically minded, so I'd appreciate any ideas. thanks mp
