Guide me which Bimmer should I buy....
I am not very handy in car repairs but some time I try to be and enjoy it.
Now as I am working from home so had enough time to do these kind of things. I want to buy a BMW which can be customized (body-wise) looks nice, I am not racer but love to quick pick.
Basically by looking outside, I like more 5 series ....

As I am new, so suggest me which bmw should I buy to start and customize its exterior by-myself. I have not much budget. I am thinking of spending 2000 - 4000 on car (would love to spend 1000$, if i can get some reliable piece) and can spend 2000$ more on customization.

Edit: I also cannot afford to go to dealer for maintanice. So would prefer to do myself, no matter how much time effort it takes if it is possible or will go to local shops not dealer. I want to do work on it by myself. So looking first which is easy to start for first project car.

Actually I am trying to decide to select 5 series vs 3 series, which are easy to handle maintained wise. And then which year is more good. I looked e34 people are selling around 2k to 3k but all have some problems. So should I look more newer modal like above 2000 year?
