    Default Static Shocks

    I've been getting quite a few static shocks today. When I've been driving the Vectra for a while, then park up, turn engine off and get out, just as I grab the door, to close it, SHOCK!

    I don't know if it's the new jumper I bought today or the metal irmscher pedals I put on this morning, or if it's just a random event thats struck today...

    Was just curious if anyone else has had this before?

    Worst one for this was my Escort 1.8si, used to damn near catapult me across the driveway.

    The way to get around this is to hold the top of the door as you get out, or ask your significant other to get out first and have a ****** great laugh as he/she does the St Vitas dance instead

    Regards

    Nidge.
