Sounds as though your car is going into 'limp mode'.This happens when the ECU 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 ECU 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 ECU read and go from there.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
