I don't know if it's true or not, but I've read a few times now that the 16 inch wheel option also comes with heavier axles which also helps it in sitting taller
For what it's worth before my 5er came in I measured a bunch of units on the lot. They were all 15 inch wheel models. I don't remember the exact measurements now but when level on level ground, the bottom of the 5er was about two inches lower than the top of my bed rail. I was convinced I was going to have to do at least a 6 inch subframe to level with the 16 inch wheels. However, once it arrived I was nowhere near that low so either something changed for '16 or the 16 inch wheels option offered more height than the 1.5 inches or so of the tires only.
I'll be out screwing with my 5er tomorrow. I'll look to see what axles are under. It's not level where it's at though so I can't really get measurements for reference.
