Can anyone please advise what time & mileage intervals the Cam chain & tensioner would require inspection and replacement at on the TSI 210 engine?

The tensioner on pre 2012s needs replacing immediately if it hasn't been already, but once done hopefully shouldn't need doing again. The chains have been revised several times, I replaced an audi a5 cdnc 2011 last year w/80k on it and the new oem chain which was several revisions further than the original part number was much beefier and the original chain had stretched.
