New purchase findings

We just purchased a 2004 A8L with a very lengthy maintenance history. After bringing it home and getting intimate with our new to us car. I found several issues.
1.One is the gas gauge will not go past 1/2 mark. Have filled it three times. What can be the problem?
2. When starting the car, MMI shows all suspension menus in white. Setting it to standard nothing happens Nor does the automatic or dynamic. A few minutes later the yellow and green light on the dash comes on. Now the only setting on the MMI lit in white is LIFT mode Standard, Automatic and Dynamic are blacked out on the MMI screen. The rear of the car is lifted and the front is not. Any advice here? When I tested the car It was level front and back.
3. Bulb out indicator on. DRL not operating. When I hit the flash to pass both bulbs come on. I set the MMI for DRL to off mode and bulb out indicator shuts off. Is there a control module for the DRL? Location? Any other probable causes?
Thanks. Any help would be great.

Do the suspension recalibration outlined on the ross tech wiki.
