    What is a Porsche "TU?"

    I was looking at a TSB and saw the labor estimate of "310 TU." Does TU mean Time Units and if so, what does a TU equate to in plain English please?

    Re: What is a Porsche "TU?"

    100 TU = 1 Hour so 310 TU would be 3.1 hours.

    Re: What is a Porsche "TU?"

    well dont believe Porsche they charge as they like here!!!!

    Re: What is a Porsche "TU?"

    There's TU inflation. I read elsewhere that it may in reality take only 20 minutes to do a certain job but the time charged is one hour. It's just done that way; it's not considered cheating. In a chart I saw somewhere it's not exactly just rounding off to the nearest hour either.

    Re: What is a Porsche "TU?"

    On the other side of this is the tech doing the work. He gets paid only for the specified TU time for any work done on your car. If they need to replace an RMS and the book says 600 TU (just an example, NOT the real time allowed!) and he really need 8 hours the nhe has just worked the exrta 2 hours and not been paid for them.

    I'm not sure this is possible. In the USA full time employees must be paid for the time they spend at the workplace. If it were true it's very depressing as far as getting quailty service on your Porsche ("there is no substitute," right?).

    Re: What is a Porsche "TU?"

    It is, most if not all service techs only get paid for the published "book time"to complete the service. They are generally not full time employees, they are deemed contract labor.
