Adaptive cruise control is the one which uses a radar and keeps a pre-assigned distance from cars in front. Adaptive cruise control was not speccable on the M5 or M6, despite being available on the lower 5 and 6 series models, so I imagine it will be the same for the M3.
And as far as I'm concerned, cruise control is a useful tool for long journeys and in no way detracts from the performance orientated nature of the M3.
