Going to get under the hood this weekend to change oil and give it a good inspection. Hopefully nothing frightening is found. With 133K on the clock is there anything particular I should look for (it had new turbo and timing belt at 98K)?

I feel like a kid at Christmas
Welcome. +1 for checking the banjo bolt and keeping that oil topped off at all time.

I think 28.4 mpg @ 133k, that's pretty impressive.
