200,000km service

Alright. My owners manual is officially MIA. I'd just like to gather some opinions on what else I should do for the 200K service, or 125K miles. I know it's mostly a repeat of the 60K service, but would like some feedback anyway so I have everything for reference when it hits 300,000km!

What I've done this weekend:
- synthetic oil & filter change
- synthetic transmission oil & filter change
- replace spark plugs (new wires are on order)
- checked brakes, underbody & driveline - full visual inspection
- rotated tires
- completed brake fluid flush
- fan belt checked
- air filter checked
- replaced O2 sensors last month

What the dealer will do:
It's going back to the dealer so they can fix the faulty T-stat they installed last month by the way. While it's there I'm having them do some things that I don't have time for.
+ power steering fluid flush
+ coolant flush & fill with heater core service (backflush)
+ A/C check
+ alternator/battery load test

What else? Thanks.

Excellent! Thanks for that. I'd never thought to check out the US website for the info. It's bookmarked for future reference!
