2. if it is under warranty take her in to your nearest authorized dealer and have them check for a short for the shift light flicker, guessing bad connection.
3. I think you have come up with the name for the next gen Lotus vehicle - Exceleration !

I too have noticed the brake application = headlight dimming a bit in very dark areas at night and would guess that is normal, but the flickering red shift light at idle sounds strange.

The flickering shift light is a common symptom of loose battery connections. I should know, my car did the same thing. Check both the lugs and the clamps at the battery terminals. It's possible that it might affect your headlights as well, as a loose battery connection might confuse the voltage regulator under load.

EDIT: The Uberpost is a great resource for things like this...
