Is SAP implementation time realistic?

From an SA online news article, SAP claims that its Kick Start and Go solution for SMEs can be implemented in two days; and its Fast Start pre-configured CRM, financials and hardware solution in 8 weeks.

Comment from a local SAP consultant is that it takes 2 days to configure SAP – so how does Kick Start and Go work? We are implementing at a large manufacturing company (target segment for the Fast Start program) and the complexity of an organisation like that makes an 8 week timetable look totally unrealistic.

I assume that SAP comes in and tells the company how its financials will be structured and how its processes will operate in future.
