Your numbers aren't that far off...the mpg posted is established using professional drivers...I could likely coax a few more mpg out of your car if I drove it because I know how. Generally, today's new engines do not need any "break in" so it should have adequate power right out of the box! There may not be any updates for the computer, but the map sensor should be able to compensate for altitude changes. Using a synthetic oil can help a bit as well.
I'd try and find out if there were any optional transmission or final drive gear options offered for different localities. That may affect both mpg and performance. As for shifting, (as well as everything else you mentioned, I'd definitely contact factory customer service if you aren't getting anywhere with your dealer) The car didn't cost $5.00, and therefore I would take it to the "next level" if you aren't happy with it!!

Standing at the front of the car looking at the intake manifold, its on the right hand side of the manifold about 6 inches down from the valve cover under a black cap with a 32mm top on it.
