SO I now have well over 50K miles and have replaced the air filter, did another oil change w/filter, new fuel filter and have inspected most everything and have rotated the tires (again).

So what other maintenance would you perform at 50K miles? I am planning a new accessory belt this spring to summer (on or around 75K miles) and I also wonder at what point I should start looking at a possible turbo replacement or timing replacement..

I have the manual, So I would think a transmission oil change would not be needed for a while..

What YEAR is this car?

Go ahead and change the transmission fluid. The rec'd service interval is 45K.

Brake fluid has a lifespan of ~3 years, and the clutch shares the reservoir.

Dexcool has a lifespan of 5 yr/100K miles, whichever comes first.

If you have rear drum brakes, they could probably use adjustment and cleaning.

The timing chain basically never needs to be changed. Turbo - likewise.

I had my transmission fluid changed at 50k. That was the only extra. My fuel filter was about due at the same time, but that was more coincidence than it was related to a specific mileage.

The dealer said the radiator fluid needed changed, but backed off when I told them the owners manual specified 150k miles.
