Gen5 100,000 Miles - - - How to get to 200,000

2003 Camry, I just recently got it to 100,000 miles. Just wondered what preventive measures I should take at this stage. I will need to change my timing chain, I already changed my sparkplugs. I can't think of anything else other than regular oil and filter change, air filter, and other regular stuff. As for the timing chain should I get done by the dealer or can I go to any reputable mechanic shop that can probably do it for less?

get the transmission serviced..fluid changed. Get the rad flushed.

As for the timing belt, get the water pump replaced at the sametime since th belt is already off it won't take anything to get it changed (they usually die at 100,000miles).
Get it done where you feel comfortable..

Replace the timing belt and waterpump as stated above. Follow the manufacturer's maintence schedule and service/repair anything else the comes up.

Maintenance is the key.

I currently have a car that I beat the living piss out of with 243,000 miles on the original engine.
