You could try and follow the run of the cable and try and straighten out any tight turns it goes through.The inner cable wears through the inner sleeve and starts to catch causing the needle to jump.
Sometimes a little re-route is all that is needed,other times a new cable is required.
If you need to change the cable you'll have to remove the dash binnacle,but from memory it's not too difficult a job.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
