My question is: why BMW wants the new 3-Series to have a new 1-Series look with this "droopy front" and plain interior?

I saw the new 1-Series at the Munich airport and its front is a disgrace due to its exagerated "droopyness". I mean, the ugly headlights only serve to point out that suddenly the hood is expected to become one with the road in front any time soon. And that what ends up doing is making the car look inexpensive, with a big front overhang... like it is front wheel drive.

Now I see this 3-Series and it is the same impression.
