hello all from the newbee

hello to you all,
I'm new to this site and new to alfa ownership, so just to give an heads up here's my story.
Spent the weekend I had off work putting myself through hell working on my 156 t spark.
This started more or less straight forward by installing the variator service kit of spring and washer.......well after starting it ran for a good five minutes then faded and juddered and died refusing to restart...checked the timing which was right, then the nightmare of electronics as best I could, still no life.
Anyhow at the end of my somewhat short tether I arranged for a diagnostics guy to call round, guess what ........the ecu has failed.
.....sourced replacement ecu , code ecu and chip for key for only 29 though, so just waiting for these to arrive and should then be back on the road soon...
can anyone say whether this is cmmon on this model?????
