It's going to be a hard sell as its priced the same as similar cars and is not substantially cheaper which I would expect for a quick sale. If I were considering it I would like to see better pictures at the home. Photos of the service book. Details of when timing belt was changed. Am I right in thinking its a UK import. This will mean more history checks and owners on a 100k miles car. Price it at the minimum you will take and see what reaction you get. Best of luck with the sale.

It is an english import brought in by a kia main dealer, and bought off them.

Good points here, will tackle it at the weekend.

What does it matter if its a UK import? The buyer wont know the difference if I'm honest

I highly doubt that the speedo has been changed to km only, not telling leads to a potential buyer thinking what else the seller is not telling.

It does that it happens to be a higher spec model that alot that are available here. But the point re Km/Miles is fair too.

UK imports are so common here I'd doubt it matters much. Also anyone who runs a history report and looks at the service history will know that it came from the UK unless you're dealing with a right idiot buyer who doesn't do any checks.

It wouldn't bother me that its a UK import but to others its an issue that the clock is in mph and can't be changed on this car. It also means that I would have to do a check on the UK reg to satisfy myself the mileage is correct. They are little things which put off potential buyers which the op is trying to gain interest from. Sell up the car with what ever extras the car has over Irish models is a good way of portraying transparency and knowledge of the car for sale.

Most cars have dual mph/kph analog clocks or can switch from one to the other if the clock is digital. Also we drove here for donkey years up to 2005 with the same clocks as the UK. Judging by the amount of cars being imported from the UK the mph clock thing is a non issue for the majority if there is a bargain to be had. I really think it's nitpicking or some people just cannot get their head around the mph to kph conversion.
