Re-the X reg,I think you have answered your own question on this one.It sounds like someone has tried to break into the car and has damaged the lock mechanism.The central locking impactor tries to pull the lock,but can't and jumps back up.I'm sure that if you remove the door card then all will become clear.

The M-reg sounds like the outside handle is broken.If the door locks and unlocks on the central locking and you can open it from inside,then the outer handle has to be at fault.The boot is eithe ra broken wire into the tailgate for the impactor,or the impactor is faulty.You need to take the trim off and see if you have a feed to the inpactor when the central locking is operated.It could be just seized up.

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