Yes, that's how long it takes to physically do the recode but the process isn't that simple. Service needs to contact BMW for authorization to run the code, and that can take 3-5 hours alone.

I dropped my car off at 8 and had it back by 2. Unless your SA gets advance permission from BMW and has the code ready to go, you're going to be without wheels for several hours.
