If you have noticed, the front of the 5er is not as forward leaning as the 3er's.

When they LCI the 3-series in 3-4 years, they might do some minor changes but overall the shape of the front as well as the hood line will remain the same.

I personally find the F30 better looking, inside and out, than the E90. But I remember when the E90 came out many E46 fans and owners weren't happy with the design, just like you aren't now with the F30.
I think the E46 was a much better design, at it's time, then the E90 is currently.
