Sounds as though your car is going into 'limp mode'.This happens when the
picks up a major fault in the engine management system and runs an emergency 'get you home' program.
I'm sure if you had an
code read at a local independant garage,you would be able to trace what is causing the problem.There could be many different things causing this,so it's best to get the
read and go from there.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
