Don't know if I have an m3??

I know dumb right but Im really just getting into the BMW scene. I have a 98 e46 with a car phone cassette player and the old navigation system. I'm not sure if it's an m3 cause it has the inline 6 and m3 steering wheel and dash. What's the best way to find out?Click image for larger version

Were you sold this car under the assumption that it was an M3? I'm curious to find out how you obtained the car, yet didn't know if it was an M3 or not... I'm being genuine with this question, I'm not trying to harp on you.
