the E46 had a facelift in 2002 which redesigned the headlights among other things, e46's between 98 and 2001 and called pre-facelifted, while those 2002 and after are called face-lifted.

Yep, your car is a pre-facelift car which are the headlights that came before the redesign in 2002. Here are pictures to show the difference:
