Mark :

Alot of what Audi recommends should be done at least yearly, irrespective
of mileage.
boots and such should be checked at the same time.

Change oil/filter?  should be done every 3-7k miles anyway

Belt condition and tension?  at least yearly

Tie rods and suspension?  checked whenever you do/get an alignment

Don't use mileage as a gauge for the TB...Age and the environment should
also be taken into account...it should be examined for cracking, etc

The spark plugs (correct ones) last a LONG time...
Ned at IA posted that he took the F5s out of his boosted 5k and put them
into his daughter Marnie's.

Check them for wear,  clean them if necessary and reinstall them.

How about checking tires for even wear?
condition of struts/shocks?

Coolant hose condition?  especially around the after-run coolant pump.
how about the heater control valve...or the crankcase breather hose?
