The 735 is the Lower Maintenence Work Horse of the two. I would AVOID any car that was owned by someone that went NUTS on the Road. Full Chips - NO2 - Cats removed - Brake disks that were Blue From The Heat. Am I painting a picture Here. The Guy I bought my car from was about 75 Years old. He had the Oil changed every 3000 miles. When I took the valve cover off for the first time it looked like a new engine inside. The biggest problem the I have had is getting the Fuel System Cleaned & the Transmission Cleaned out. But use common sense, like Never Buy a Car That had a Trailer Hitch. Especially when you see a 3000 Kilo Travel Trailer sitting next to the guys house. You know that Transmission is TRASH. Any Way, look for the car that was driven and cared for by a NORMAL HUMAN BEING that spent the money for service. Ask for ALL of the service records, look them over and build a picture in your mind if this car is GOLD OR CRAP.

P.S. I do wish you all the luck in the world.
