Mine has stainless steel door sill inserts.

What the hell was their test car doing with "three season" tires? That probably explains the braking not being up to their performance sedan standards. C&D&#39;s 70-0 braking was the same as the S2000, which is a car known for its excellent braking.

Also, they were driving on some damn uneven roads. Shit!

Other than that, it was a pretty accurate review IMO.

Because that&#39;s what the MS6 shipped with from the factory-- specifically, Bridgestone Potenza RE050A.

Interestingly, the closeup shot of the tire tread in the video clearly is a different brand/model tire.

It&#39;s to compare it to the new Mazdaspeed6. They were saying how a lot of Japanese cars had other, more powerful, tuned versions.

I have a 2006 GT, and I don&#39;t have them. I bought my car used, did they come as an option or something?
