Static shocks - 159

Does anyone else keep on getting static shocks off their 159? I do and I'm wearing the same shoes etc that I used to in the 147 and I never got it in that!
I always get them when I get out and touch the door pillar as I close the door.

Maybe it's a sign you need to change your wardrobe to something more appropriate for a 159
Joke aside, it really something unique to everyone, I get some serious shocks from the shopping carts at the local supermarket every time.
You should get one of those electrostatic rubber bands for your car, it might solve the problem.

I've never had it on the 159, but I used to get zapped all the time in my previous car. I'm pretty sure you can buy earthing strips from the likes of Halfrauds, as long as you don't mind you car looking like its got a bit of loose undertrim.

Cloth seats or leather seats?

I've been getting the same with my 159, a Ti so leather seats.

Glad it's not just me!

The problem with earthing strips is the look like little tassels hanging off the underside of the car....
