I bought my E in June of this year, and I love it. In the past month, it has started to shock me when I get out of the vehicle. Now static charges are nothing new to me; living in the zero humidity south west; but this is different. It hurts! Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on how to get it to stop? I haven't had any other cars zap me as much (or at all) as my E.

Thanks,
-Doug

I have the same situation with everything I drive. Very dry area. I just touch the metal part of the door every time I get out to disapate the static. I have just made a habit especially when filling up with gas. Sheepskin seat cover don't help at all.:roll:

I'm going to run a piece of 4 gauge power wire from a metal portion of the underbody down to the ground.

Like those ground strap things you can buy for $15. I have extra power wire laying around so I'm going to try that. I don't need any stupid reflectors or crazy super conductor metals like some of them claim to have. :roll:
