HID=Xenon but i'll attempt to answer what I "think" you meant.

I believe that even on the E46 M3s that Xenons were a separate option only.

Meaning all E46s came standard with halogens unless ordered with the xenon option. Regardless of package (performance, premium, etc)

Facelift coupes have projectors no matter what. If they're HIDs, I think the projector shroud will say "xenon" on it
