Renault megane mileage problem

Hi there

I'm looking in to picking an up an '03 plate Renault Megane.

Currently looking at one on eBay , 2.0 VVT Priviledge with a claimed 40k on the clock, which I realise is on the low side.

Theres no service history but has had a recent service (previous owners bought from dealership) so have used the DVLA website to check MOT records.

They show:

a first entry in 2006 of 27k (being about 2.5 years old)30k nine months later in 2007

33k another 9 months later in 2008 (MOT by dealership current owners bought from 'AVAILABLE CARS LTD')

36k a year later in 2009

38.5k in 2010.

The current owners bought the car 2.5-3 years ago, claim not to have used to much. Prepared to believe this to an extent as they seem genuine enough - but - I ran a second check using one of those "mytextcheck" services and it records one retry of "28000" (note exactly 28k) on 8/8/2007... a few days after an MOT was given with an MOT stating 30k miles.

Can anyone vouch for which of the two I should believe? If it was a significant difference I would call the sale off without a doubt but the discrepancy is only 2k miles.

Thanks a lot.
