Am I legally required to convert my speed from kph to mph?

I am considering importing a 2003 Volvo XC90 into the UK. It is LHD and the speedometer is only calibrated in km/h. Will this be legal?

No. The speedo head will have to be changed, the light will have to dip down or dip left and the rear fog light will need to be switched from the left to the right. Google kmh to mph speedo conversions.
