    Id say pressure check make sure you have no split hose's lost power!,make sure brake fluid has been changed at some point mayby clean fuel rail for better flow,and keep up what you have been doing!

    I recommend your oil pick up to be cleaned/changed.

    As above, plus I'd be refreshing the transmission oil, haldex oil & filter (which I guess you've been doing anyway?) and the diff oil. Going to do mine in a couple of weeks, now at ~ 85k miles. Oh, and a celebratory detailing session of course.

    Almost certainly the oilpickup clean.

    Replace all vaccum hoses

    Wishbone bushes and suspension mounts/bearings

    Haldex oil change

    Gearbox oil change.

    Do it all yourself and parts shouldn't cost you more than £100 and you would have covered most things that could potentially go wrong.
