    Hi Guys, Does anyone else suffer from electric shocks from their A3s?

    I keep getting quite nasty shocks from the A3 after a drive, only just started really.

    Car is garaged every night.. if that makes a difference

    Anyone else or is it just me?

    Also I dont have any problems with the fabia vRS

    I don't personally but my wife often gets a static shock when she touches the doors. I also say it's her electric personality!

    Yes.
    I have got into the habit of 'thumping' the car when I get out though.
    Just a quick thump with the side of my fist to 'earth' me.
    Better that than the helluva jolt you get when you gently touch metal with a finger.

    To be fair,it's probably the car getting it's own back on me for hating it with a passion.

    I used to get shocked by my ex's Punto all the time, she would just p*ss herself laughing at me! Stupid left hand drive car getting its own back for saying its been built the wrong way round!!

    Perhaps you need to try different trousers or shoes ;)

    True,I do get more shocks if I wear a particular pair of shoes.
    I enjoy thumping the car though.

    I get a static shock everytime I touch the door. In every car I get out of...

    the amount of static build up on your car can depend upon the weather.
