Yep,it certaintly does sound as though the alternator is about to commit suicide.I'd check all the engine earths and battery connections,and if this doesn't show up anything I'd beg/borrow/steal a multimeter and check the alternator is charging.Anything around 14 volts is good.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
