Excuse my manners....welcome to the forum!

If it's back firing,then either the ignition timings out or you've got a burnt out exhaust valve.

The first thing to check is the cam timing via the timing belt.It is possible that it has had a belt fitted incorrectly and this is causing the fault.If you need further info on this,get back to us.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
