Looks like a typical M3/m4 underneath w an exhaust. Too bad about the horrible understeer. I do like the color.

Nice M2.
What were you cleaning the car with? Any issues with the dirt residue on the garage floor, or do you hose/squeegee it out?
That was part of the prewash step, so I had foam gunned it with Meguiars gold class before I rinse it with high pressure and then switch to Optimum rinseless for a two bucket wash.

Garage floor has been great and we have had zero issues with it being slippery as well. It rinses off well and a few times a year I wet down the whole floor and squeegee it all clean for appearances.

Thanks. You did all of that while in the garage?

Not that I've seen. I pretty much put it up and hose it down. On older cars I'll spot treat with simple green and a wide setting for low pressure from a pressure washer.

I think the DIY is "it's a messy job". I use a Tyvek suit, gloves and goggles the few times I've done undercarriage cleaning. I used degreasers (simple green, Meguiar's red super degreaser, and also a petroleum based degreaser for baked on stuff), brushes, rags, and hose pressure hot water. On my E39 M5, although it had essentially never been in rain and of course never a winter road, it did suffer from the infamous power steering hose leaking plus general road dirt over the 15 years I owned it (sold on BaT in 2018). I spent maybe 2 hours with it on a lift cleaning it up, but it wasn't too nasty to begin with fortunately given its 66k miles.

The best DIY is start from brand new and never let it get too dirty!
