400E 120K service items

Will in the next few weeks be performing a 120K fluid/filter service on the 400E. Didn't have my Bentley manual at work and didn't check as I was originally only buying parts for the Diesel but have now decided to go ahead and take advantage of free shipping and want to make sure that I do all factory recommended jobs.

Will be changing cabin and engine air filters, fuel filter, A/T service with new gasket and filter, diff fluid change, new plugs, engine oil and filter change. Won't be doing power steering fliter and fluid change, coolant change or brake fluid change as these were done about a year ago. From memory the only thing else other than lock, hinge and sunroof greasing and component inspections would be the distributor caps and rotors.

Questions: 1) Are the distributor caps and rotors required to be "renewed" or is inspection listed with replacement as needed?

2) Anything else listed in either the factory manual (CD) or Bentley's that I need to purchase/do?

Thanks for the assistance.
