Oh, I get it, this is an ironic joke on us "serious" BMW owners. Ok well the answer to your question is this.......yes, there are lots of differences

wikipedia said:
M3 compactTo celebrate the 50th birthday of the German automobile magazine Auto Motor und Sport in 1996, BMW M GmbH handbuilt (at least) one official BMW E36 M3 compact. The car was tested and described in the June edition of the magazine.[10]

The car embodied all the mechanical (engine, driveline, suspension) and visual (bumpers, wheels, mirrors, dashboard) characteristics of the stock E36 M3. It was powered by the 321 DIN-hp 3.2-litre engine, and its color was red with a black cloth/alcantara interior. It had the forged Styling 24M 5-doublespoke wheels that came standard on the M3 cabriolet, an exhaust with fairly centered quad exhaust tip, Recaro sports bucket seats, red four-point seat belts and an alcantara wrapped steering wheel and gear lever.

This is why I just ignored this thread (for starters) as I didn't really know what to say.... Thought it might have been a joke.

Anyway, to reiterate the answer that Billy also gave.... Yes !

Honestly dont worry. Im not sure if the guys thought it was serious or not..:thumbsup
The M3 is a very different beast from a regular E36, the M3 evo is a different beast again. Have a read through the forum and also have read here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M3
