I'd say the place to start are the earth connections between the battery and the body,and the body and the engine.They have been known to corrode and cause allsorts of problems.
The whole wiring loom under the bonnet can also suffer from corroded wires.Look for tell-tale greening of connections,and also pull the wires as sometimes the only thing holding the wire together is the outer insulation!.I had this on my previous Lag dTi......
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
Currently in Lagdti's garage:
2004 Saab 9-5 HOT Aero and a 2001 Audi A3 1.8 Turbo
