2007 r56 D cooper issues...fuel additive, gear stick and passenger window

I'm just on my 2nd cooper D. I've driven the new (to me)car for about 2000 miles and have noticed a few differences between it and my previous incarnation. The new car is on 50k miles and the old was on 98k.
Firstly although there is no loss in power or performance, the new car seems to sound a little rougher on running...the Eos additive seems not to be working as the service indicator shows no change (ie it remains on 100000 miles til next service)...is there anyway to check the pump is working and the additive is being added without a trip to the $tealers? And would this make the car appear to run rough?
2ndly, the gear stick rattles when in neutral. Light pressure stops this but it is annoying...I've read on here that this can be the? Sender? Or a loose engine mount on the 1st generation mini, is this the same for the 2nd generation and given it is a known fault is it something Bmw will fix gratis (hahahahaha)??Given that is mildly unlikely what and where should I be looking?
Finally the passenger side window doesn't drop when opening and closing the door...I'm thinking a dodgy sensor but again am not sure where to look?
Many thanks in anticipation of any help

Ok...with regards to the gearstick...further research would appear to show it's the gearbox selector ,not sender that is the problem....anyone any idea how to change this??
