03/12/2008 (103 889)
18/11/2009 (113 205)
10/04/2010 (73 142) (6 months after above test??? what is the point in this, surely this should have flagged something up somewhere to someone, the system is seriously flawed if not)
01/04/2011 (84 089)
current mileage (87 000).
That mileage is easy to justify - for the first 3 years of its life it was probably a sales rep's car, hence the 30k a year. Then at its first MOT it's offloaded into the private market, where it then does a more average yearly mileage.

Do you have a copy of the V5 the seller will have had? That will have shown who owned it before him and you might be able to trace them and find out if they know what happened regarding the mileage?
