    As its 04 it has Z16XEP Twinport-engine and the timing belt change interval on that is 100k/10 years.

    tbh mate, I would change it now, if you don't and it does snap you'll be looking at a very hefty bill indeed.

    It will last 100k no problem. Z16XEP's timing head is much better designed than Z16XE's.
