I agree. The running boards are mounted below the rocker, which which lowers the clearance and is not as clean/integrated looking, and makes the car look a bit 'heavier' if that make sense. The 3rd gen running boards were mounted in place of the lower rocker which gave it a much cleaner and more integrated look. Personally I'd skip the running boards since the car is pretty close to the ground to begin with and they don't look particularly good.
While I don't think they look bad on the OP's MDX, I agree mounting them lower given the already lower stance of the gen 4 serves little purpose from a practical standpoint. Maybe some vertically challenged individuals find the boards helpful but, for most, they are an aesthetic only. If you're driving an F-150, its a different issue all together.
