High Miles 535xdrive n55 what's next to look out for

2012 535xdrive 114k miles
. need this car for another year. worried if something big is coming soon or can make it another 20k miles. Good to 90k miles then needed the following over the next 20k miles
here is a list of the what was replaced.
issue my cost vs to dealer
manifold gasket. (indy $400 plus parts) (dealer $1,100)
high pressure fuel pump (indy $250 plus parts) (dealer $1,100)
tensioner, belt and pulleys (indy $500 plus parts)(dealer $1200)
ignition could and spark plugs (on my own $350 parts (dealer $1,800)
oil filter housing gaskets (on own $35 parts) (dealer $400)
oil pressure gasket (on own $30 part)
Next
tensioner failing need to replace. will be the 3rd
thinking water pump may be coming up soon although no issue yet.

what are most common failure and possibly big ones at mileage over 100k

Looks normal, though it looks like you've skipped the recommended(by ZF, not BMW) 60k transmission fluid change.
