Default Scheduled Maintenance Future?

I have a 2005 A8 4.2, with 62k on the clock. Just did an oil change along with air filter replacement and spark plug change.

Looking to the future what should I expect?
I heard that I should replace the timing belt and Water pump around 75k, and oil changes every 10k or my opinion 12-15k. Is this true and what else should be needed or do I plan on doing for regular maintenance up to 100k.
Thanks a lot.

I would be curious about the water pump. I have not changed mine but I just had the timing belt changed at 75,000 miles. Also I was told to do the spark plugs after 80,000 miles.

Yeah, i believe the spark plugs should be changed every 30-35k. From talking to many mechanics they all said how it is great to do a timing belt change but its not needed that early as long as you check the wear of it and don't drive like an idiot you should be set to at least 100k
