Angry Renault Vel Satis instrument panel replacement

I am still waiting for final confirmation on this issue from the service centre trying to resolve another problem with my car.

In brief, I have a Vel Satis and the new service centre I am using asked me about an instrument panel replacement at 21k. As far as I know it did not have one. My car is now on 26K and I have had for 2 years. I bought it from a Renault dealer on the Renault-to-go and it had 2k on the clock when I bought it. The service book shows no servicing except for a 2k pre-delivery service.

It seems as if the instrument panel was replaced 3 years ago (i.e. before I bought it) and the dealer I bought it from never told me.

The car was sold to me as only having 2k on the clock, but it seems it actually had 23k. Besides the obvious issue of not been sold a car with the correct mileage, I am also concerned that the 2 services I have had done to the car are incorrect, as they were the 12k and 24k service instead of being the 38k and 48k services and it means that some scheduled checks / maintenance may not have been done. Also as the service book does not show that the first 2 scheduled services were done.

Any advice on what my rights would be in this situation and what action I should / could take with Renault?

Curious...I think most Vel Satis' sold on Renault to go were ex management cars - I'd be surprised if it had done 21k miles on their fleet. I wouldn't be surprised if it had a new trip computer fitted - mine decided to switch to metric for no apparent reason at 18k miles - the dealer couldn't sort it, ended up with a new panel under warranty.
