The NA version of the 95 m3 used a bored 3L block from the 92 325.

In 95 a few hundred special "lightweight" M3s were released. All were white with the motorsports flag decal. Lightweight Info

Here's some info on the 3.2L that I stole from 007

The question is should i go 95 m3 or 96-98...... with the 95 i get less torque but i can still add a chip..... and supposedly the 95 suspension is more sporty . Any cosmetic changes?

The 95 was also the only year that came with the floating rotor design, and offered in cosmos Black METALIC. GO for the '95 if you have $$$ for mods.
