those 17" alloy wheels are OPTIONAL in Germany. Perhaps BMW NA decided on only 16"s. ?

Look under: ausstattungen (left side of the spec sheet)

Standard wheels: 7J x 16 wheel style #360 with 205/55R16 tires. Square wheel/tire setup.

Optional wheels: 7J x 17 and 7.5J x 17 wheel style #370 with 205/50R17's and 225/45R17's. Mixed wheel/tire setup.

Btw... this looks to be the only option for the ActiveE.

Yeah. That's what it also says in the American brochure. Sad to say, none of the dealers I spoke with knew of this option :/
