Default Used car immediate part replacements?

I'm planning to buy a second hand Sedane with 100k miles. What would be the parts that I should replace immediately when I buy the car? (Because some parts can be visually inspected to check for wear but others cannot.) Any thoughts or additions?

brake fluid
transmission fluid
power steering fluid

oil filter
fuel filter

master cylinder
all 4 brake calipers (pads & discs can be visually inspected)
valve cover gasket
PCV valve
EGR valve
serpentine belt & pulleys
battery (battery might not have wear indicator)
wheel bearings
inner & outer tie rods
various rubber bushings

Timing belt and water pump if they haven't been done.

Calipers I wouldn't replace unless you need to. Seems unnecessary.
