Nice work Stef,some great detective work.

It's amazing that a coil pack problem could cause all these faults,but at least it's not as expensive as some Peugeot Sagem systems.The coil packs have a habit of spiking the ECU and then the ECU passes it on to the idle air control valve.Even with repairing the ECU rather than replacing it it's a 700+ job to sort out.

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