Default Timing belt change interval 60k or 100k ?

I have just replaced my timing belt with 64k on the car. I replaced the 2 drive belts along with it. When I removed the old timing belt it was in VERY good shape. It had no cracks, wasn't visibly stretched, and had all the teeth in place. Prior to replacing it I asked service guys @ subaru dealerships and some said 60k , others said 100k. Since it's an interferance engine, I decided not to wait till 100k and change it @ 64k. Now I'm thinking it was probably not necessary.
Have you already replaced your TB, if so how many miles were on the first one ?

Oh yeah, I did everything myself, and I didn't have crankshaft pulley wrench, but after some search on the internet I found a smart tip to remove the crank shaft pulley bolt. Put a piece of pipe on the wrench and lean it agains the metal inside the car. Then go crank the engine with the starter so it makes 1/2 a turn or less.

Holy Crap! I know there's no way that would work for me. I see visions of my engine torquing itself out of the engine bay and flying through my garage wall....

That is how I removed the pulley on my 4EAT RS. I think in the owners manual it says to check the timing belt at 60k for wear and replace if needed, but it should definitely be replaced at 100k.

Dude, don't worry, all you do is turn the key and immediately turn it off. The engine will only turn 3/4 or so.
It's a lot safer than it seems.

I removed the bolt in my 4EAT the exact same way. But i placed the wrench on the ground and half a turn later it was off. No biggy. It's getting it back on that was a real pain in the rear.

I replaced mine somewhere between 101k - 106k I don't remember which but it was in really good condition. Will I wait that long again? Probably not.

I think my owner's manual says 110,000, but I could be wrong. I remember it not being at any of the 30000 mile tune ups.
