Angry Not sure about this BMW service center

I was told that I had a recall for my 2012 550, the service guy tells me once I arrive that they have to keep the car for almost two weeks! I said , what???? Mind you I have had no issues with this car except a new battery replacement, all under warranty! I purchased this vehicle while stationed in Germany! The service agent said that they had to run some programs then send it to BMW, then BMW would send approval to repair, and or replace . Finally they would be checking the chain in the engine??? Some craziness about the chain stretching and possibly messing up the timing?.. So they may have to drop the engine! SO they would need two weeks, possibly?
Has anyone heard of such a recall, service? Please help me understand!
