Talking Regular maintenance Bravo 1.9 JTD?

Hello everyone!
Last week, I got my hands on Bravo 1.9 JTD 74kw 2001 with just 234xxx km on the clock. Problem is, I'm furious that I know nothing about Fiats and diesel in general (I used to drive E36 316i, that car was easy as hell to work on). I'm curious, what should I look for on Bravo? What are the things I should change as soon as possible or are prone to break easily? Obviously, the smartest move would be to drive it to a mechanic for inspection but I want to hear from you guys who used to drive or still drive this car.
I was also thinking of chip tuning it, it only costs around 100e where I'm from. What things should I change/check before I decide to do that?
So far, I have only changed the ribbed belt and I'm planing to change every filter and pour in some new oil.

Second the above.
Find out when cam belt kit including water pump last changed.
If it's due a change again do it.

Glow plugs and the relay were a regular thing on mine. But I should add that mine was a 99 model 105JTD.
