From BMW NA press release:
It all begins with proportions. The new, long hood powerfully symbolizes BMW's loyalty to the inherently balanced inline-6 engine. The long wheelbase, short overhangs
I highly doubt it. BMW will never change the car's geometry until its brand new model comes out. hood is new because it has to accomodate the new headlight shape.
