Dont get that M!!!
The 95 was an odd ball year. It has the s50b30 motor that was a one year run. The s52 came out in 96+ and has a more solid head and makes a little better power.
HOWEVER! If your going for boost get the 328. The m52b28 motor takes boost the best. The M motors are bored and the walls being thin means under boost they like to eat head gaskets.
The car I would take would be the 325is. I did the whole buy an auto and do aa manual conversion thing and will never do that again. Just buy a manual to begin with. The 325 has the m50b25 motor which will handle boost well but throwing in a crank from the m52 or m54 will give you 2.8 and 3 liters respectively and will drop right in.
With all of these cars plan on replacing every bushing and ball joint.
