Angry problems starting with my new car...

Well, here come the first problems... and i hope it'll be the last ones too.
Last week: I was washing my car and when I finished the exterior i opened the right door, (actually WANTED to open the door) but couldn't because something inside the door handle broke. It feels really loose now...I can only open the door from the inside, and most of the time i have to open the window slightly before the door will open.
2nd problem: I was driving home tonight when suddenly this yellow warning light comes on in the bottom left of my dash (looks like an engine or something). Anyone who knows what that could be ? And can I still drive my car safely now ? My dad had that same problem and then they replaced the 'lambda sonde' (don't know how you say it in english, sorry...) and everything works fine since then.
I have to take my car to the dealership monday morning but i want to drive my car this weekend, so please let me know if it's dangerous driving with that warning light on.
I'm glad i have euro-plus warranty till 2005
Cars are good, BMW's are better, driving a BMW is the best !
