Hello and welcome to the forum.

It definately sounds like you have a pencil coil problem,so I'd get it back to the dealer asap and get them to sort it.

I would avoid using the car until the problem is sorted as the catalytic converter in the exhaust system can be damaged by the unburnt fuel entering it due to the misfire.

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