Is that the M3 that's at the Toy Store in Towson, MD? I think I recognize that picture.

Note the regular 3-series side skirts on the car - that denotes that it's a Luxury edition M3, so it might well be an automatic. I think the Luxury editions are also slightly detuned and have a smoother, less sporty suspension, but I'm not absolutely sure and could be wrong.

Here's a good picture I found, I think this one is a Luxury edition too.

Real M3s have M3 side skirts, no doubt.

here's a pic of mine, btw correct me if im wrong but i thought that the luxury edition didn't have vaders, thought they had a different type of seat. the shitty pic actually looks like a fake m3 to me imo. hard to tell but it almost looks like there are 325 seats in it. also i dont think the luxury m3's are detuned.

The one in your origonal pic is indeed the luxury edition, but it has the same 240hp engine, it will have the basic 3 series interior though, it will have the same seats as a 325i series with a sport package. Also you won't have the side panels that are found on a sport M3, I also believe the suspension is the saem as in other M3's, but am not positive on this aspect... But trust me it is all M3!

by the way, the black M3 picture is not a luxury edition

No, some '95 M3s had standard painted 3-series side skirts, and I've seen at least one modder swear by them because they have better aerodynamic properties than the normal M3 sideskirts.
