My wife hasn't tried them out yet, so no opinion on the comfort issue, but the install was quick and very easy. They blend in well, so I like the look. I also like the fact that the support arm is inboard of the floorboard, and therefore will not interfere with getting her feet on or off the floorboards. We're leaving on a trip tomorrow, so I'll report back next week on the comfort/ease of use questions, but I must warn you that the info will be of marginal value. My wife isn't very fussy. Lucky, lucky me!
