Depends on how anal you want to be about the use of the word identical. Seems pretty much identical in performance to me, although I do agree that the M3 will have the better top end. Hard to find even 2 M3s that are identical in performance. Magazines have them running from 110 to 115 in the quarter. And the explanation is not early versus late models or manual versus DCT. Road & Track had a 6 speed 08 M3 at 4.1 to 60, and 12.5 at 114.8 in the quarter.
