Hello and welcome to the forum.
To be honest,the rear brakes have got to be miles out of balance to fail an MOT,to the point that one isn't working at all or one is grabbing on.
Did the rear cylinders leak on to the shoes at all before you changed them?.
Are they adjusted up evenly either side?
The brake limiting valve controls both rear brakes so doen't cause an imbalance,and as your car has ABS then I strongly suspect it won't have a valve anyway.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
