I would bet the following are reserved for CSL only: rims, tires, extra vent holes on hood (the ones near the power bulge), CF roof, CF interior trim. I think all the other design elements are 99% production.

In case you have not been keeping up and want my "proof" of this assertion see these two almost identical posts:

The CF roof will be on "standard" M3. What will be changed are imho the wheels and the steering wheel. So you're right about 99%.
I'm not sure about the vent holes on the hood. Although they look like a CSL feature....if you've ever seen a M3 prototype and that amount of warm air around the front end you come to believe that holes must be there...
