Congrats on a new ride.
If I were you I would do all that you have mentioned needing the repair first.
1. Trans fluid change
2. Rear seal changed
3. Tensioner (upper, lower, and middle one) and belt changed as well. You can use OEM part without BMW logo from FCPEuro and be good for another 82k miles. I did that as preventive maintenance at 90k and happy. Currently at 125k.

Be ready for Filter Oil Housing gasket to be going south on you soon if not already. This needs to be addressed if happens to avoid any oil getting on to the belt causing huge engine issues when belt rips. Another is Valve cover gasket. Your Spark Plugs should of been changed at 60k. If no record, change it to know the mileage.
