Hello all,

I'm looking to buy a 735i 5-speed, and currently have leads on 2 cars, a '88 and a '90. My mechanic (I currently own a 6-series) told me to stay away from the '88. However, the person that has the '88 in question has replaced a lot of items and seems to be a maintenence freak. The '90 owner seems to know diddly about cars.

Are there any 'gotchas' on the 88 that I should look for? Any gotchas in general regardless of year? I really appreciate any advice that you grizzled 7-series owners can give. I've thoroughly enjoyed my 635 - and can take some consolation in knowing that I'll have the same great 3.5 liter engine in my new 7.

Happy New Year to all,
Troy
