OK, back now... amazingly when I started the car to go to the dealer, the "have engine checked" didn't come on.. but I took it anyway. Went out with the service manager in the car to demo the noise and he did agree that it isn't right - pressing the clutch did stop the noise, so as mentioned, its not a wheel bearing or similar. They need to take it in for diagnostics, so have arranged for Monday when the "Master Alfa Technician" will be available.
Will keep you guys posted.. its defo not right, although I did feel like I was being picky when I took the guy out - basically saying that most of the time, if the stereo is off, at certain revs, in 2 gears, there is a slight noise! However since I was there I also mentioned the wind noise whistle I get from drivers door mirror which annoys me too (no doubt they will think I'm a pathetic Alfa nut now!)
Saw a lovely Stromboli Grey 3.2 Ti (well it has 2 pipes) when I was there, which may now be my fav colour for a Ti
