    I'm not going to say it's worth getting worked up over, but it's also a dumb thing to leave until you see it coming apart.
    Put it on your "to do" list.
    Amen.

    If you're itching for an upgrade TooGQ, NST pulleys are an option. If you do this, remember to get a new stud to attach the crank pulley, as they're tightened to yield. Also, as a fellow DCT owner (it should be the same on autos), keep in mind that you'll need to find a way to hold the crank pulley still to loosen / tighten it. An impact driver is almost mandatory, if not you gotta get creative.

    Aka immediately

    Use an oem belt.
    Why OEM? I just changed mine and used a Bando. Seems good so far. I used them in the past they were OEM on my last car. Now I am second guessing my choice to use Bando. Not a huge issue, wasn't too bad to replace it, will probably be faster second time around. FYI mine looked good, changed at 98k. Figured it would look good until it didn't and I don't want to get stranded. Essentially changing it is a $16 insurance policy. So to anyone out there thinking about it.. Just change it at 60K I may just start swapping it every 50K when I do my manual transmission.

    Bando does OEM belts for Honda and Toyota. I have owned alot of Hondas and have used Bando for some time in my Hondas. Was a little cheaper than OEM, and I figured they had worked out well in the Honda so why not.

    This is what I got.
