GTSport is a beautifully appointed car and the brown nappa leather interior lovely... a premium look and feel....BUT no armrest in this top of the range car!!!...Dealer says that one available as an accessory.....but it only comes in "black leatherette"....namely plastic!!! Why can Mazda not produce a matching one in brown nappa leather. Mazda makes a big play on the Jinbai Ittai philosophy of "car and driver in harmony"......A plastic armrest in a luxury leather interior doesn't spell "harmony" to me...more like discord!!
I have written to Mazda UK about this problem...so other GTSport owners and prospective owners get in touch with them and put pressure on Mazda to sort this problem out pronto..J.

The GT sport is limited to 500 vehicles in the U.K. Iirc, hence good luck in your quest :D personally I would prefer a sunroof.

Agreed Gus,

Have seen the GT interior and wasn't a fan ....

For us Sunroof (can just see it), Black Leather and the Automatic Distance Cruise Control. Other countries have them, why can't we?

Another 20-30 BHP wouldn't go amiss either; maybe when the MPS comes along ..............

They say no one wants it in the UK when I queried it. It is on the US spec vehicles !

I agree with Mazda, can't see the point in it, there are things I would much rather have.

Well I for one do want it. Had it on my last three cars and on my wife's car. Plus if you lock the door manually it doesn't open when you pull the internal handle unlike other cars!

There's no way to make the doors auto Lock? The manual mentions an illusion button to do this

Nope, not on the U.K. models.
