NI/UK Car - problems trading-in?

My Zed is a UK car sourced from a Nissan Main Dealer in NI. I've for the first time started to receive problems when discussing a trade-in i.e. refusal to take it!

I'm explaining fully the background of my car upfront so there no surprises. The car was reregistered on the 'mainland' when I bought it over.

They're refusing on the grounds it's an import which it isn't but think the DVLA records indicate it is (might try to call them direct to see what they say). It's a UK car, on UK plates (well it will be once my private plate is removed) with a UK V5.

Anyone had any issues with this before or am I just on an unlucky streak of dealer speaking to the wrong traders?

Never had this before!
