Approxiamately how long does the car run for before the temperature is high/fan cuts in?.Is the heater hot?.
If there were blocked pipes in the cooling system(as the garage said),then it's pretty certain that the radiator is partially blocked too.Theres also a strong possibility of air locks in the cooling system.
Where do you buy it from?.If it was from a dealer,then you are within your rights to take it back to them and get them to sort it.
Has it always done it since you've owned the car?.
There could be many things causing this problem,so bear with us and we'll work it through with you.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
