I'm not sure if your car has a cable driven speedo or an elecronic one,but the common fault on cable ones to cause an erratic needle is the inner cable catching on the inside of the tube it runs in.Sometimes straighening the run of the cable and making any turns in it more shallow can help.

It's unusual for a cable to cause the speedo to stick when the car is stationary though......

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