New GT Q2 in Leeds

Well, after reading much advice and spending years on the obvious German Audi/BM options I have done it. A lovely GT Q2 JTdM is now sat outside. Black (of course), black leather (I would have gone tan but not red), 18 inch alloys - all on a 57 reg with 52k miles. Only driven it home and a short run to York but very pleased. A few things I will be looking at and asking for advice on. But here's hoping for several years of style and enjoyable motoring, with not too much cost. Please!!

Probable jobs:-
Clutch is riding a little high for my liking, will have to keep an eye on that.
Drivers door is solid but rides up on the latch a bit.
Cannot get the iPod that i plugged into the lead in the glovebox to work through the stereo.
Needs a 2nd key.
Gear knob has the metal peeling a bit. Will look at the options mentioned on the forums.
Need to consider the cam belt change in near future.

By the way........
What is the acceptable / suitable response to other Alfa GT drivers?
Within minutes of picking mine up a GT owner coming towards me gave me a wave. Unsure of the acceptability, I proffered a head nod, slight down, to the right, with a firm gesture, seemed better than a wave! Thoughts??

all the best guys
