Maintenance intervals (NOT a question about oil changes)

I've already figured out I'm changing every 5K/6mo. so oil change interval is not what this is about. I'm wondering about all the other stuff in the manual that says 8, 16, 24, 32K, etc. do various inspections & other fluid changes/checks/etc. Would you go by mileage or time on that stuff? I'm at 7K in 8 months, so there's no way I'm hitting 16K/12months or 24K/18months unless I start taking a lot of trips. I'll definitely hit 5K in a 6 month period so that's why the oil isn't an issue.

I've been trying to figure out whether to take it in for oil and the 8K maintenance intervals for the extra stuff when one of my 5K periods falls close to that mileage or just do my own oil all the time and then every 6 months or 8K interval bring it in to the dealer for the "extra" stuff minus an oil change cost since it probably woulnd't be due for an oil change at that point. Obviously some of the "extra" stuff I can do myself, but some of it I can't due to lack of equipment, knowledge, or both.
