From what I could see those look like a piece of cake to install. There is no interaction with the wheel wells or mud guards. There are just a handful of easily accessible bolts to attach the running boards to the undercarriage.

Can anyone confirm that these are as easy as it looks to install compared to the Sport Running Boards?

If they are that much easier, I'll pay the extra $50 for them and move on with my life, saving the hassle of 3-4 hours on the ground.

It looks like it's about the same amount of work. See this person's write-up:

Installed Advance/Premium Running Boards on 2011 - AcuraZine Community

With the sports, I still had to remove the front splash guard and trim. It looks like the main difference with the sport is making sure everything lines up in both wheel wells along with the bolts underneath which took me some time doing the install all by myself. I would suggest having someone help with that part!

I'm looking for the sport running boards for a 2011 MDX as well.
Looks like you got a pretty sweet deal on the price. They seem to be running between $400 and $500. Any one know where I can find em cheaper?

That's what new ones cost at places that give good discounts, like Tim at Acura of Peoria. If you buy from Tim, don't forget to use his coupon codes for discounts on shipping.

You can try looking for used ones on car-part.com, a site that's used by most of the bigger junkyards across the country.
