Hello amd welcome to the forum.

Nice choice of car!!

If you have had the car looked at by numerous people and they can't find it,it's going to be vey difficult to source the fault.The only bit of advice I can give you is check the relay box that is situated in the engine bay to the right hand side as you look from the front.The wiring is prone to 'rotting out' and the tell tell sign of this is any connections which have a green coating to them.I bought my Laguna DTi as a none runner and found the main control relay wires had corroded and broken,you could literally pull the wires apart,although the outer plastic casing looked fine.
Another place to check is anywhere where there is an earth wire connected to the bodywork.Again,look for greening of the connections or general corrosion.

If there are no codes registered on the ECU ,then it is always a bit hit and miss as to where the fault is.

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