Hello Melissa,welcome to the forum.
Can you replicate the fault by hitting the top of the dashboard with your fist?.If so,then the poor connection has to be in this area,possibly behind the instrument binnacle,or more likely around the fuse box area.
If the problem happens everytime you drive it,then that will make it much easier to find.It's intermittant faults that are the real pains to find,and you can guarantee that if anyone brings them into us at work the fault will never appear whilst we have the car!.
What area of the country do you live in,we might be able to recommend a garage that charge a sensible anmount of money and one that is capable of finding and fixing the fault.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
