New 159 Sportwagon

Hi, Can anyone throw some light on a few problems I'm having with a brand new 159 sportwagon 2.0 Ti JTD.

1. The Trip computer for some strange reason goes dim and brightens for no reason

2. Blown stop and tail bulbs after 1 week

3. only averaged 27mpg over 1800 miles covered since October 5th at max 75mph

4. door aperture weld splatter stopped the door seating properly - now fixed

5. Background transmission whine in all but 5th and 6th gears

The main worry is the electrics, has anyone had the same, or can anyone help.

Have booked with dealer but hope to get Alfa customer service involved.
