I'm looking at a replacement grill for my 04 mazda 6. The one I want is a mazda part but it says that it is for an 04-05 without speed6, sporty type. Is this sporty type a different bumper than the sport model.
The two grilles offered in '04 are the "sedan" or "chrome mustache" grille, with the black honeycomb mesh, or the "sport" grille, which is body-colored and consists of horizontal bars running across the front end.
Be careful of grilles for '06-'08 models. I know they are different visually, and that probably means they are not compatible with the '03-'05 bumpers. But any non-Speed6 '03-05 grille should fit your car.
