Depends on what you have already done.
Personally, I did a valve cleaning and updated my tensioner at 50k. The tensioner is hit or miss, but if it goes your motor is toast. Since I now have the updated one and haven't heard of any problems with it, I probably won't touch that again. I would still do the valve cleaning every 50k though.

As for other things.. Fuel filter should be changed every 40k, and I also do plugs at the same time. If you still have your stock plugs, it may not be a bad idea to get them replaced.

If you want anymore info just ask! And if you want to schedule something just shoot me a PM!

Installed some shifter cable and bracket bushings for someone yesterday! Drank some beers, talked cars and installed parts. You too can do this, and get some cheap labor done in the process!

Bump for next week. Picking up a spring compressor and vacuum bleeder over the weekend so I'll be all good for suspensions and brake jobs.

Up! Free the weekends of the 7th and 14th in June. Anybody need valves cleaned or a tensioner replaced, or just general performance parts added?

Power bleeder and spring compressors in today. Will do brake flushes for $75 plus two bottles on vw fluid (~$13). Spring/coilovers installs for $175.
