I always thought that the static shock I got from my Junkstar was awful. But... the Odyssey beats it hands down. We have been having cold, dry weather lately and the static shock I get when I exit my 02 Ody is horrendous.
I get to work when it's still dark, and the static spark is more like a flash bulb and reminds me more of arc welding than static shock. It hurt too.
Anyone been able to curb the unwelcome defibulation we get when exiting our Odys?
I've never tried static guard, but I might be concerned that it would attract dirt well.
As a side note, some hardware folks at work have a permanently mounted rubber strip mounted on a hinge under their car, such that when stopped, the rubber strip(which is presumably doped to make it conductive) droops and touches the ground. At the slightest motion of the car, the rubber starts to fly so it doesn't wear out.
I had an Audi(yes, with cloth seats) awhile back and use to get zapped whenever i got out of the car when air was dry (don't seem to have that problem with current car, but i do have sheepskin seat cover), to prevent from getting zapped, i would hold on to the top of the door while i was getting out of the car and never got zapped again(yes, people would ask me what i was doing, because it looked strange).
