I don't think the rear end designs of the E90 looks like the F30. Especially because of the lights. The F30 tails wrap around more towards the front of the car, and more in towards the license plate. The biggest visual difference in the lights is the "LED light tubes", that look short, stubby and stuffed into a tiny space in the LCI E90, but on the F30 wrap around the sides and extend in towards the license plate a la E92, F10, F01, etc.

E90 rear lights just look stubby, to me. Like they don't flow well or integrate smoothly with the rest of the lines on the car. The light tubes on the LCI look like a crammed-in afterthought. Not like they flow as part of the body.
