newbie needs bit of advice

Just bought my first ar - a 52 plate 2.4 jtd veloce. 2 days only and I love it to bits. A couple of niggles with it though, could do with some advice.

1. n/s/r door handle has a broken hinge, any leads on a replacement?
2. Suspension is generally soggy, suspect shockers are had it, are they easy to change, what should I expect to pay for std (veloce) items all round.
3. Brake discs are a bit crusty, are they easy to change, what cost should I expect for a set + pads?
4. I want to fit a cd changer in the boot, what's the best route for the wiring back to the head, what is the best pick up for a switched live for power
5. Any ideas on a source for an owners manual
6. What economy should I expect when a. driving like a granny; b. givin it some pasty?

Cheers in advance
