I am hoping it is only a day or 2.
If your car is not an ED being shipped to US, Customs will not hold up car (unless we have a time of civil unrest). Factory built/delivered cars typically are cleared by paperwork only. Rarely do physical inspections take place of cars never delivered.

What could hold up the works at the VPC is customer ordered parts being installed, minor damage needing repair, cars failing quality inspections, parts/replacement parts that were airfreighted by BMW for VPC install (usually stuff damaged or missing from production line).
