The body parts are different (especially fenders), but it's clearly an E46. I can't see BMW deviating radically from "a lowered 3-Series body with added cladding and other minor visual upgrades" as is being implied by this article. Just look at the M5 and M6. Neither of them is radically different in appearance than the base models, and if BMW were to stray too far, they may as well remove the "3" from "M3" because the name won't make sense any longer.
