Default New owner need some info please

Just bought a 2006 520D 109 thou on the clock two owners from new full service history nice car but few problems already.

Have the little triangle on the dash and messages BMW SOS call disabled ? right side number plate light not working even tho it is and right side brake light out.
Another thing is the mpg is only at 33.1 after doing over 400 miles and has crept up very slowly from 23 mpg when i picked up the car. I thought these cars were meant to average 39 mpg ?
Also the Nav dvd drive looks like its bust.

Any help regards Dave

I only get 23 on my sedan. If you're getting 33.1, that's phenomenal!
