Hehe, there may only be one "Onyx Black", but you may not get that colour when the parts guy hands it over to ya. Before you shake the damn thing, they all look the same: dark.
BTW, dark grey metallic (steel grey in the USA) is 26X.
For the 2004 thing: Think of it as a mid-year change, as car manufacturers update things all the time without waiting into next year. It's only confusing because the model year designation doesn't match that of USA cars, which is unusual. As to why Mazda switched: I hear it was a cost issue, radio reception performance issue, supplier issue. Take your pick! :nana:
I only know this, because I was shopping the 6 at the time. Due to some funny circumstances, I didn't buy until Dec 2004.
...I see it was a slight on the parts guy.
