I agree - the convexity of the curve on the vents is greater than that which I see in my 1 series every day. Also there is a good bit of space between those giant vents and the instrument cluster - the 1 series doesn't have space there to put an "eject" button! Maybe the space below the airvent is straight from a 1, but more likely just similar styling/layout.

Having both a 1 and a 3, I prefer the less-upright layout of the 1. Glad to see it is making its way into the new 3!
