I did mine at 86k and it was looking pretty rough. Looked fine on, but once it was off you could see cracks all over, every tooth.

How many miles are you at? You can't tell there is a problem until it snaps, and then you are effed.

You could honestly do it anytime, I'd do it by like 90k if I were you, your car is getting older age wise too.

if u take it to a garage your looking at a $600-800 repair. belt is like $40-60 and rest is labor. there's also tensioners/pulleys you want to replace too.
we should have a garage day at someones place,maybe? during the spring. i would if i had a house/garage. my parents moan about me using it, let alone anyone else. i still dont think they they im taking the engine apart in there.lol
