I agree the F30 exterior appearance is a big step up from the E90, with the emphasis on BIG and that's no accident. F30 takes the 3 series further upmarket with a more premium appearance and larger size and price. A fully optioned F30 335i runs just shy of 60K which is pretty amazing for a 3er. So the 3 series now occupies the market segment once held by the original 5 series and the 1 series takes over the segment originally pioneered by the 3er. I still think though with the right equipment and mods the E90 holds it's own even compared to the F30.
