Maintenance at 100,000kms?

So my wife's 03 E46 is about to hit 100,000 kms...what should I do to it?

I'm assuming air filter (and obviously continued oil changes), but what else should be replaced as preventative maintenance now...plugs, wires, anything of that sort?

Thanks, sounds easy enough.

Where's the cheapest CDN place to buy the spark plugs, and which model are they? Same goes for the filter, and what about the in-cabin filter, where is it, as I've never replaced one on any of the cars I've owned.

Go to Bimmersport Automotive (phone: 905-670-9200 , web: http://www.bimmersport.ca/). They do it for way cheaper than $1,000, I'm not sure what's their current price as they may have summer deals.
