I think he got it from this place HERE

I was actually looking at the same shift boot & ebrake combo. I forgot to get a shorter shift boot when I put the stage II in, so mine is a bit saggy :/
They sell them in stock height, as well as 1" shorter boot for the stage II. They sell the armrest cover there as well. They sell them separately, or as combo packages. If this is the right one, it's $109 for the shift boot, ebrake cover, and armrest.
There is no option to select Mazdaspeed6, just 2004+ Mazda6, but it looks like they are the same.

Blockhead, can you confirm this? & Thanks for the How To for the armrest cover!

Old post, but Ben that's one incredible interior!

I've been looking for a way to switch out the old grey armrests on the door because they're very ugly and super uncomfortable with my long commute every day.

Anyone have any leads to how/where I could get new door armrests, possibly like Ben's above, but for my 1st Gen 6s?

Try junk yards to see if they have any. :p
