No it's not possible to change everything over from a m3 to a regular 3 without enormous amounts of bodywork that would make it cheaper to just go out and but one. The entire roofline is different. I have an 88 m3 and an 84 318, they are similar in someways, more so than a 325 and a m3, but not enough where you could fake an m3.
: Since it is possible to change everything over from a wrecked M3 to a "normal" 3 series, I would think the best way to tell is by the VIN number. Check the dash, underhood cowl, and body panels for the VIN and make sure they all match.
