Do it yourself for around $20. Not hard at all.

i'd wait. they're usually good for 100k. but i'd also recommend
inspecting for yourself. check inside the cap, and wipe the interior
with some of that blue synthetic cloth you get on a roll. avoid avoid
avoid getting sweaty fingers in there - the moisture/salt track can
cause spark tracking and loss of ignition power. particularly check the
center contact - if it's obviously worn or too wobbly, replace the cap
[and center contact] and arm together.

if you replace, make sure it's a good quality, preferably honda,
replacement. do NOT use aftermarket with copper or brass terminals -
copper oxide, the spark erosion product, is a conductor, and just like
sweaty fingers, you don't want that providing any stray conduction
paths. [aluminum oxide from aluminum terminal posts does not have this
problem.]
