Default Just Got An 06 With 120k ish, What To Do For Maint?

So, I just picked it up, and didn't have a chance to do much last weekend.
(I did check all the fluids, etc etc but didn't change any or do any real work)
So my plans for tomorrow are
1 oil change
2 transmission fluid change (It's an automatic, sooo)
3 Plugs? Wires? should I bother? The guy I bought it from had done all the services, etc, but just wondering if I should go ahead?
4 front brake pads, they're not gone, but they seem really low. The rear ones looked almost new.
5 coolant flush
6 ????
7 Not maintenance, but adding bluetooth and aux input into the stock head unit.

Right now it seems to drive fine and get decent mileage. ~27-28 on the highway, and 24-25 driving to/from work and around town.

The air filter looked fairly clean, so wasn't going to bother.
Any overly common preventive maintenance things I'm not thinking of?

When you do your oil change seafoam it.
I would suggest transmission flush.
Check if timing chain is ticking.
Scan for any hidden CEL's.

Oh and supercharge it

Trying to resist the urge to charge it, or heavily mod it in any ways.
Primarily this is for travel, and possibly going to be my wife's car.
(She can't make up her mind on keeping her piece of crap VW cabrio or wanting this car)
Timing chain is making zero noise, the only "engine' related thing I'm nervous about
When it's cold out, if the rpms are below about 1500, the heater SUCKS.
I'm hoping flushing the coolant will help, otherwise I guess new water pump?

Yep.

That stuff was a lot harder to find than I thought.
Stupid dealerships being jerks about it.

"We only have enough for our service department on hand. We can order some, or you can have us do it, we're cheaper than anywhere else." They then offered to do a tune up and transmission flush for ~400$.

FFFFF

I didn't bother with the plugs, the PO replied to my email and his mechanic had just changed them about 10k ago, (he's friends with the guy and he remembers the mechanic cursing him about the stupidity of nissan for how hard it is to get to the plugs. I agree with the mechanic)

A buddy of mine from the 4x4 world with a transmission shop had some of the nissan fluid so I swung by there, figured wouldn't mind his take on all the "solutions" out there to this transmission, but he drove the car before and after we changed the fluid and agreed it seemed fine. He's ordered some more fluid to change it again, since it came out a bit grosser looking than I had hoped. He's able to get the fluid for <8$ / quart. Which is about as cheap as I've found online, so I don't mind getting it from him, and it gives me an excuse to go to his shop, drink a few, and play with our radio control rock crawlers. (and since it's "to work on the car" the wife won't get mad about the hours it takes)
