Sorry to hear about your problems.
To check the cambelt is still in one piece,try and remove/loosen the top cover and have a look at the belt.If it seems very slack,or you can't see the belt on the cam pulleys,then it's snapped.If you can't see the belt very well,then get someone to turn the engine over whilst you have a look inside the cover.MIND YOUR FINGERS if you do this!!.Check to see the cams are going round.If not,then again the belt has gone.
Good luck,and I hope it's nothing as serious as a belt gone.
Let us know how you get on.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
