Default 100k upgrades and replacements

My car recently turned 100k and I know some of the parts I need to replace already, like the fuel filter, spark plugs and serpentine belt, but are there any other parts I should replace or upgrade while I am doing all of this?

A lot of people forget PVC, cabin filter, FLUSH that radiator. Bleed them brakes/slave cyl. Brake fluid naturally draws water to it. Easy stuff. But have you had a 4 wheel alinement yet. I could go on. Just food for thought

I have had a four wheel alignment done, and have been replacing the cabin air filter, and it is the 2.3L engine.

When my 6s turned 110k recently, I replaced every coolant hose in the engine compartment. I ordered them from Jim Ellis Mazda ( Mazda Parts - Authentic OEM Mazda Parts direct from Jim Ellis Mazda | Jim Ellis Mazda )
and they fit beautifully. Cost about $350. I think the hoses could have gone much longer though. The originals seemed in pretty good shape but I drive across the Sonoran and Mohave deserts every month and can't take a chance on a breakdown in these remote areas.
I've also replaced the serpentine belt. It didn't appear to be in bad condition but I feel better safe than sorry.
