This question is like asking what oil to use, there's a lot of opinions.

Some recommend every 3 years or 30,000 miles. I find that too short, but I do a visual and check them with the Porsche tensioning tool at every oil change.


Sounds good, thank you. The last guy did it 4 years ago but the car has only had 700 miles put on it since then. It was garage kept and maintained for 20 years, then someone backed into it drunk not seeing it in the garage, destroying the front fender, bumper, hood, and a few other small things like headlights. Guy sold it to my uncle for 7000. The car only has 9000 miles. We have put 1200 into new tires, rims, and the body parts that we got of a parts car.

Factory recommends that new belts be checked for proper tension after 500-2000 miles.
