Hello, I am new here .Have just got an imported 2008 Vellfire last week.

 

Can someone please confirm that it is legal to have a the original speedometer/odometer in kph and kms with a separate digital speedometer on dash? my Vellfire has beautiful km display panel unconverted.I read that MOT is not bothered with Odometer in kms... I already have Sat Nav , dashcam and the separate didital speedmoter all in miles per hour.

Hi Wai, (pun Intended),

 

Many owners convert to mph.

But some don't, and they do pass the MOT.

 

The only issue, in my mind, is that your indicated speed is in Kph.

When driving in Spain I had a window sticker to enable rapid cross referencing.

 

I suggest you ask you intended MOT station, just to be sure and give time to find another MOT station or convert the odometer.

Hi Roger, Thanks for your input. My next MOT due July 2023.  I quite like the display ..  Speed display is not annoying as I have 3 other appliances showing mph..  MY dashcam on interior rear view mirror, my old Garmin Sat Nav  and the digital mph speedometer supplied by the seller.. I suppose I have to make sure every service shop records my reading in Km.

Yes, you do need to ensure the MOT station records the mileage as Km !

 

As many stations won't notice, or care !
