Bimmerlover76,
Take a look at this pic. Don't tell me that the e92 m3 is more aggressive. To each his own. Anyways, I actually asked my 6-year-old nephew which looks meaner today. He pointed at the F30 3 series.
I do see your point and I will concede that there are aggressive points of the new gen, but there are a couple of things that give me pause.

First, the straight hoodline that cuts into the flow of the metal. I'm not sure how they could have fixed this, but I am sure that it doesn't work well.

Second, I think a spear tip or sword edge is more aggressive looking than the blunt end of a hammer or any other blunt object.
