Have you recently bought new footwear? some soles insulate better from static than others so don't discharge static when you touch the ground.
Artificial fibre clothing i.e. fleece jackets are made from respun plastic bottles and hold static like little devils.
Low carbon tyres don't ground out very well and hold static more.
Strangely, I get terrible static shocks from supermarket trollies if i push them over laminated flooring (like the dreaded electrical and clothing departments in Tesco's).
I have to hold the metal parts rather than the handle to discharge static as it builds or else i get a nasty bolt every time.

Nothing wrong with the shocks when they happen, would just like a wee warning just before hand
Going by etis my Fiesta is fitted with regen braking, would this cause a build up of static
Didn't have this with my previous Mk7
