The handle is an easy fix. you can either order one from bavarian or you could probably find a used unit cheap on ebay. The idle sounds different. Mine idles high for about 2 seconds then drops down to around 500 rpm's. Could be your idle control valve, but then again perhaps not. The other guys should be able to help out more there.

First and easiest thing to do is use SeaFoam, which reduces/eliminates carbon buildup. You can add it to your gas, crankcase and intake to reduce all carbon build up problems. Must change your oil after 50 miles of putting in the seafoam, due to its ability to breakdown oil. This should smooth out your idle, if not fix it, since its a old car. If it doesnt fix it go to the next step(if you havent already checked), which is finding a vacuum leak or an icv problem.
I always run SeaFoam right before I change my oil, as its recommended by the manufacturer. This just helps keep your engine running smooth and helps keep your engine in smooth shape.
