Post Timing chain on 560 SL

Hi all, I own a 1989 560 SL Model 107. The car has 200,000 km and runs perfectly right. The car is used from April to October. I am now concerned with the timing chain. There is no noise coming from that area of the engine yet. I am not so worried about the chain itself but more with the top and bottom guides. Should I have it inspected at the MB dealer or just go ahead and replace the entire chain and guides replaced?
