I'm pooing it at 65k and none known, nevermind nearly 200k!

Edit: he's done 100k on a belt. Whats the recommended schedule on these?
100k miles. I got mine done at 85k as I said. I only did this because it was convenient at that time. On reflection it was a good idea as we found on removal that though the belt looked like new, the waterpump was getting stiff and the tensioner was quite rough.
