Yes, there was a mark on the tyre side wall but it was minor and disappeared after a good wash and some scrubbing.

Re: Caller Name Display on RHP 730 Radio

How are your numbers stored in the phone? Full version (+61 4....) or just the number (041....)?

Think it may have something to do with the way the numbers are stored in the phone.

You didn't. Tow bar wiring is already there but tow bar is additional. Makes a good bargaining item, just tell the dealer at the end you will sign if he includes the tow bar ;)
