Make sure the belts have been done if the car's over 3 years old. Any misfires will be down to one of three things, fluid in the plug-wells, MAF or coil pack. If the seatbelt light is stuck on there's a small port on the righthand side of the boot with a conection behind it, it probably just needs tightened up or cleaned. If it starts to sound like a diesel when it starts up, it's the variator (get this changes at the same time as the belts), the worst it will do is make the car sound bad and run a bit less efficiently (it opens up the 2nd bank of valves when the car needs more oomff).
All of which I experienced myself with my dear old 156, before it got killed in a 6 car pile-up. If I think of anything else I'll let you know.
