    G'day old plumber,
    I seem to be susceptible to static and I have got into the habit of holding the metal on the door as I get out. WorKs for me!

        Agree. My NM would zap me at the slightest provocation. NW is much better.

        Fitting a static belt won't help because the car is already grounded. What you need to do is ground yourself, because it is you that is carrying the static charge, not the car.

              The soles of your shoes is what does it. I get zapped wearing certain shoes mixed with the dry and windy weather.
              Try bare foot or different shoes and see if you still get zapped.

                Different pants, it's your bum sliding across the seat when you get out that creates most if the energy. NW seat material may make it more susceptible...

                      Yes me too. BTW I have a 2WD sedan as well as the PJ and get zapped from it as well.

                      It seems to be dependant on the weather/ time of year. Right now it is bad in Sydney. I assume because it is dry.

                          I use the anti static spray from the laundry dept at the super market .Works,& I keep it in the car & use when needed.Spray all over all seats.

                            Always had static from my NT. When I remember, after being bitten a few times during the day, I use my elbow to close my door. Seems to be better than the zap to the end of my finger.
                            For a matter of interest, which way does the flow of electricity come from?? From the build up of static in our bodies, or from static in the vehicle??
                            Cheers, Tony.
