found a good thread about it:

Yes, Continental phased them out last year. It was a gradual transition, where different part numbers switched at different times. I was able to get an Elite on eBay last year, and judging by the date code, it was probably one of the last ploycog belts for that part number. If you really want a cogged belt, you can always look on eBay for listings that have a picture of the belt, and buy one of those.

That said, there is nothing wrong with the Conti OE Technology Series. They are quality belts. Bando also makes good belts.

You could always try the Dayco W-belt if you want an aftermarket design and not just regular ribbed belts.

Conti didn't change the part numbers when they went from Elite/Gatorback to the OE Technology Series. The belts you buy from Rock Auto regular inventory will most likely be the new ones. You might get the cog belts if there are any wholesaler closeout.
