Hi, there is some development to the story now. It appears that during a (somewhat early) clutch and flywheel replacement two months ago at a renault dealer something happened and the speedo has been showing kilometres ever since. Currently 82900km (just over 50K miles)
The same dealer advised that it is impossible to revert back to miles and can only be done when the dashboard is replaced - a snip at £600.
To top it all the dealers that took the car in part ex from the last owner a month ago indicated in their mileage check that it is showing 82000 MILES and now although the mileage is definitely just over 50K it will not clear HPI showing "mileage discrepancy".
The one good thing is that I bought it thinking it's covered 81K miles when in fact it is just 50K.
Tyr to explain all that come resale time though...
