Question Whats Next??

So I Bought my 03 9-3 3 weeks ago. Has just over 95k on it. Got an oil change and topped off all fluids. What maintenance should I focus on next? I know Brakes are up there, atleast pads if not new rotors too.

I also just installed a TWM Short shifter and replaced stock bushings. Must say nice improvement. Also if anyone has any Ideas on what to upgrade next... Thinking Intake, But should I go with a K&N filter or the BSR optiflow. Help!!!!

For performance questions you should check out the performance section of the forum found here (check DIY intake and save money over BSR)

As far as maint, you might want to check how the serp belt is looking, also a possible clutch, a coolant flush, and brake fluid flush (be sure to use the correct fluid. DOT 4 i believe but im tired right now, double check before purchasing)
