@fastBob - it turns out AXE body spray works well too, but same problem as with hairspray, it smells, umm like burned deodorant - imagine that. Static guard had the least offensive odor.
@bmwrocks - I did take that unit out (DISA) and clean it, it appears to be working properly as far as I can tell.
Again today it's "very warm" (45 degrees) and the car is running 100% perfectly. So we'll see if the cold weather brings the symptoms back.
