What other things should I be on the lookout for maintenance wise, to ensure a couple hundred thousand more miles?

The keys to longevity in any car is basically the same list:

1) 3,000-mile oil changes (dino juice) or 7,500 with synthetic (but change the filter at 3,750 miles).

2) Be gentle first thing in the morning... don't beat on the car when it's dead-cold, give it 5-10 minutes of gentle driving to warm up.

3) Watch the air filter (and never use a K&N).

There are lots of little repair/maintenance tips and tricks you can pick up from watching this board or asking questions when you've got a problem.

Good luck with your new toy, hope you have many more miles of fun with it!
