I bought a new 2011 2 sport 5 speed in liquid silver.
I had done tons of research on the vehicle, as well as all reasonable competition. I found out there is an optional arm rest ($160).
Ah Ha! Guess who didn't know of such an animal. My dealer!
I negotiated the best deal I could get then said, "Well...if you'll throw in the arm rest, I'll buy it right now."
The salesman looked at me like a dog looks when it hears a new sound, that tilted head look. "I'm not sure that's even an option, but you've got yourself a deal."

After I was done with the financing fun, my salesman was about to hand me the keys. I stopped him and asked about the Arm Rest. "Almost forgot!" he said. "I did not." I replied.

Well turns out they actually had it in stock but no one EVER asked about it before.

It is actually pretty cool. It is one arms width, no sharing with the passenger, and opens up to a useful, if not small, storage console.
Best of all it immediatly brought the arm and shifter into perfect harmony.

A whole new, and better, driving experience, really!!

If you don't have this, go get it tomorrow!!!!!!!

One downside is that it mounts into the farthest back cup holder and covers up the remaining two. However, I've had no problems with any but the largest drinks fitting underneath it. (there are, of coarse, drink holders in the doors as well).

Oh and buy the way, the sales guy and finance guy now upsell every Mazda 2 buyer into the arm rest.

ok, just realized i posted this in the intro section....
i was looking to see what oil filter to buy when i found this site. (i have had my car a couple of months now)
i didnt find what i was looking for and that was to see if the filters i buy for the wifes mazda 3 will physically fit the 2. i guess next week when i change i'll let the forum know. fyi to all the armrest install needs no photos as the instructions included are idiot proof!
i also own a 2011 mazda 3, a specmiata, and a very nice hot-rod ex scca ITA championship winning 73 RX2 and porsches. i have been a PCA driving instructor for over 25 years and have held FIA, IMSA, SCCA, NASA, etc licenses.
i am at 2K+ miles and have averaged 39.3 MPG. my 2 will do a PCA driver education event shortly with my son-in-law Shezhad at the wheel. wish the clutch a long and safe life....
cheers, haas
ps. i have a lift in my garage if that helps any houston members.
