It sounds like they want to replace the throttle body as the butterfly actuator is faulty.I suspect this would come as one unit.
I'd try the cleaning option first,if not then try and source a second hand one,although I'm not sure that it wouldn't need reprogramming after replacement??
I'm not sure wether a dirty throttle body would throw up 7 codes though!!The ECU is obviously getting the wrong messages from something in the system.Did they give you the codes and what they were for?

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