My thoughts exactly...since the 5 series came out I had been hoping they would leave the front of the 3 clean, uniterrupted. But they didn't, and I'm not entirely sure why. It seems strange to have a seam running across the front...

Profile looks like a Z4 up to the front wheel, then a 5 series beyond that. The changing angle of slope on the front nose almost highlights the impression that those two cars (Z4 and 5 series) were literally welded together.
