I would get the garages in question to double check the front ant-roll bar links.If they are jacking the car up on a two post lift,this means that when the car is in the air,the links are still under tension and any play won't show up so easily.Ideally they need to get the car on a four post lift,and then check them.

The bottom joints are also a common problem,but you should be able to feel the movement in them if you jack the car up and shake the wheels side to side.

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