If the belt has broken at motorway speed,then I'm sure engine damage would have been caused.....
I suspect that a number of valves are bent,and there is a also a possibility of piston damage,too.Unfortunately it's not just a case of putting a new belt on,the head will have to be removed.
Edit;Also you will need some special locking tools to set the timing correctly.The belt crankshaft pulley isn't key-wayed on the crankshaft.You can buy a kit to do this,but I would seriously consider paying someone else to do the work(if at all possible....).
Sorry to be the profit of doom!
Good luck,and keep us up to date on developments.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
