BPY/FSI Serpentine Belt Wear- replacement interval?

Rolled past 173k km on a 7 hour drive yesterday. Started it up this morning to move it and when I opened the hood I heard a faint but rhythmic "creaking" or "brushing" sound by the belts. Took a look at the serpentine and it looks like this:



I've never seen what a new belt looks like, but the difference in colour/pattern that you can see in about half of the belt looks like wear to me, is it? What's the interval for replacing these belts on the FSI engine, if any? Looks like a pretty simple DIY.

Thanks

If you do not know the history of the serp belt replace it they are cheap and easy.

While the belt is out start the car and see if the noise issue is still there or not.
