I would have thought they deliver all the time and can estimate with a high degree of accuracy!
Allegedly the car arrives "dumb" and needs a few days of coding. Then there are safety checks and detailing.
They have had the car for a week!
Dont think i can trust this dealer workshop to service my car if this is the experience on delivery.
They do like to do checks and diagnostics. The car isn't exactly dumb but things like Navigation need activation. They also check the software is the latest, but it will be up to date most likely. My dealer said if it does need an update they often kick it off so it runs overnight, apparently a long process believe it or not. Mine was already the latest being a mid-Dec build with NBT.
A week is a long time.
Mine arrived into the dealer Tuesday morning, was groomed, software version checked, M Performance exhaust installed, and I popped in to inspect that afternoon. Then it went off to the painters to get the M Performance front lip, side sills, and rear splitter installed and painted. I picked up the car first thing on Friday morning.
If the dealer is really organised there is no need for it to take a week.
