for those of you that have installed an armrest....are they worth it and is it a comfortable rest for your arm?

I have the Boesche armrest in my 451. I like the look of it, but it could be about 2 or 3 inches taller to be more comfortable for me.

We added an aftermarket armrest to our MY08 and our MY15 is OEM both have proven to be a valued 451 option.

Although they can be lifted out of place, size (driver) may matter as if you are "fluffy" it could make for a tight fit?

I have it in both my 451s. For me it’s a “must have” item. Also, I’m fairly “fluffy” and have no fitting issues. I’m 6’1 and 290 lbs.

I agree, also a Must Have in any car or truck I own.
Terry,
Answering your questions. Second one first. Yes it is comfortable.
Now, is it worth it...? That depends...for me yes. I bought my SILA Armrest from Smartmadness all metal construction, easy peasy install, bolts right to the seat frame, very sturdy and it flips up out of the way.
But not cheap $200 plus $20 shipping.
As a matter of Fact, here is a picture of my armrest I posted on one of your earlier threads.
