The problem with the F30 front end, for me, is that while it does achieve aggressiveness, it does so by way of awkwardness.

I get that the low nose and the angle of the grille give it an aggressive stance, but then the hood should really be lower all together, instead of forming the very awkward humpback shape just behind the grille. I know it's for the pedestrian safety, but then I would point you to the A4 and the C-class for largely avoiding such an awkwardness.

The overall effect is that you see very clearly what problem the design team tried to solve, and succeeded about three quarters of the way.
