I haven't known about this car for very long, but it's become one of my favorite BMWs, up there with its contemporary brother, the 507. Easy SZ, beautiful car.

And merry Christmas too, for all who celebrate it!

Very Cool to me, but not enough for me to go Sub-Zero. Maybe I don't know as much about this BMW as I would like, but I'm not really feeling it to give it the highest rating.

Cool car. But don't you think the grill (kidneys) is/are too small?


That interior! Magnificent.

The coupe with the dark silver (convertible) would be my choice.

Nice. There was one picture I saw of one (that I couldn't find again, or else it'd be the main) of a 2-tone 503 coupe with light blue and white. That'd be mine.

SZ. Gorgeous car like most of the other BMWs from the 1950s. The tall narrow kidney grilles of vintage BMWs are my favorite. I wonder what a new BMW would look like with a set like the ones on the 503.

Wow. Didn't know about this one.

It's pretty but it's not SZ material for me.

Cool it is.
