    735i with a 5 speed

    only the iL = long wheel base had a standard LAD shocks on the rear. Another optional extra was EDC = electronic damper control. EDC is very expensive when it needs to be replaced, most people convert to standard then.
    5-speed is rare in the U.S., so the 5-speed gear is the only difference between 5-speed and the 4HP22 automatic transmission, all other parts are indetical with the automatic version. The M30 engine lasts long and was used in many BMW's like the E34 535, so plenty of used parts available.
