What's the cam belt change for 1.6 caddy?

What's your views on this you look it up on the net it says 80.000 or 4 years
But when you look it up with vw it says nothing about years just 210000 km
I did a little home work and was told change it at 120 000 and to check every 30000 the same as the t5

I think is 80k or 5 years mate. Which ever comes first. Changing cambelt is still cheaper than fixing the whole engine after cam belt failure imo
