Timing belt adjustment- how often?

How often do you guys adjust the timing belt? The factory manual says every 15k....i've heard some say as often as 3k.

So what do you guys recommend?

I read here and some other places that after a replacement you should have it tensioned at 3k, 5k, 15k, 30k, 45k and changed at 50-60k. After joining the order of the bent valve, my attitude is the more the better.

Install; adjust both belts at 2000-2500 miles; adjust again at 15k maintenance service; replace at 30K maybe upto 36k at latest or 3 years.
Changing a 60k is inviting trouble. Porsche official recommendation is 45k mile change.
