HELP strange electrics

Hi all new to me is this ! also new alfa owner, recommended by a friend i purchased a 147 2.0 on 01 plate some 6 months ago and have recently had some very strange activity ! first noticed my rear near side indicator not working also the front offside was also out,than after a few days the indicators came on and stayed on! had to take the bulbs. i took it to a local garage to take a look,firstly he said sell the car nothing but trouble are alfa,s great start ! upon my return some hours later he told me that it was the computer ec unit? which he said must have got wet and burnt out some of the contacts as it smelt? cost 350 + fitting 150 i asked if a could fit a secoundhand as this was am alful amount of money for me,he said no these are programmed for the car and not interchangeable ? can anyone confirm this or please give me some advice.
