I haven't forgotten about you guys. I took the picture yesterday, but I wasn't able to upload it last night due to work. I'll get on it sometime today.

Is it more cushier??? It looks like there is more padding beneath the leather. That might be one huge advantage instead of the regular rock solid armrest...

No, it is just my humble opinion that it is more visually appealing than the North American stock unit. The driver's side slides as well (..see pic).

Yes, it has more cushion.

It slides forward approximately 2". It's a pretty significant distance if you examine the pictures.

I was really into getting this, UNTIL I saw those last pics. I have Terra leather, so when its extended forward, that means the 'black' plastic it slides on, is going to stick out like a sore thumb....damn.
