    Another car im looking at is approaching the 80k mark, I'm aware this is time to change the poly belt, is it recommended to change the tensioners/idlers as well or is just the belt ok?

    There are no idlers, but I changed the water pump, tensioner and stat when I did the belt, my car did have double the mileage, but an 07 car is 7 years old so the tensioner may be starting wear out just with age.
