It's missing the silver 'piping' trim on the sides thats new to the 06's.




I wonder if they just painted it a different color and called it an 06. We'll have to see if the controls and/or display work haha

that picture is a MS6...the kit itself is just plain black, so it won't match either way.


And I don't think they are that stupid since they got a ton of complaints about it not working with the '06s. But who knows, stranger things have happened.

I just checked metras site and the 06 m6 dash kit isnt there (yet). But I did look at the part number forthe 03-05 (99-7503) The pn on the kit in in the above pics is 99-7507. My guess is that they just painted the 05 kit black and changed the electronics.
Maybe you could take the guts out of the metra kit and put it on the factory dash so you could keep the silver piping. (and the ms6 guys would still have gloss)

Mine are the same as the metra kit. AC on the left, and Defrost on the right.
I'd say it was a Canadian thing, but you're in Red Deer :s

That pic of the MS6 are reversed.

Only difference is my buttons have the little etched plastic to spread the light, and the metra is just straight LEDs.

For me this Metra Dash Kits are all FAKES :irate:

Did you ever hear a person writing on a Board having it in use in his Mazda 6 :drool:

NO!

The Dash Kit for Mazda 6 build 2003 was silver and had the SAME misstake

AC is in all MAZDA 6 Versions (Europe + American) on the right, and Defrost on the left side
Middle is airflow control!

They always show Pictures with changed AC,...

So for which country this dash works?
Japanese Mazda 6 - maybe :(
