It sounds like you have an anti roll bar drop link or bush gone.

There is either an arm that comes from the suspension leg onto the anti roll bar or the roll bar bolts onto the wishbone directly.If you have an arm,then I suspect that one of the joints on the end has gone,or,if you have the bar bolted to the wishbone I suspect that the rubber bush between the two has worn.

If neither of these are obviously at fault,then it could be the actual mounting bushes on the roll bar where it bolts to the subframe.

Edit;If you can take a picture of the front suspension lay out,I'll show you where the components are.(That might be easier!)

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