According to my info what you have been told is spot on.The
is hidden down the back of the engine,and if you need the numbers off of it the only way will be to remove it as I suspect you won't be able to see them any other way.
You could try using a mirror and a torch down the back of the engine and seeing if can you read them that way,but obviously they will back to front and will make getting the number correct more difficult.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
