    Depends entirely on the remap, the weather on the day, and the rolling road. Anything from 240-260 in the real world, many will claim more.

    You'll lose 60-80bhp through the transmission depending on how it was RR'd, and flywheel BHP is a calculated figure. BHP at the wheels is what to go by, and if you're getting 209 then you're in the right ball park.

    24.5 is a veeeeery low loss. i think there was a miscalculation, as chris said shpuld be at least 60hp.

    did they rr your car while tricking the haldex off? (applying the handbrake or removing the ABS fuse?) if so it would only show FWD losses.

    Pulling the ABS fuse will still allow the haldex to function and the rears to turn, and putting the handbrake on will show massive transmission loses. Sounds like they might have dropped the propshaft or done something very odd.

    they didnt pull any fuses or any thing they just pulled the car on the rollers strapped it down and then calibrated the system then done the power run.
