Tilt steering = ability to adjust the steering wheel's height, further towards the ceiling or further into your lap.

And yes, as far as I know, all E36s have tilt steering.

thats what i thought. i dunno about the cars in the states but mine has it (im in canada which should be the same cars basically)
i have a lever under the steering wheel, you push it down and you adjust the height of the wheel to your liking, then push the lever up to lock it in place.
guys check your car, there should be one on your car.

I'm in Canada too (Vancouver), and all the BMWs I've ever seen listed in Canadatrader / buysell and any I've ever personally seen have all had tilt steering. Edmunds also lists tilt steering as a standard factory equipment for all E36s.

Depends on the car. I believe the IS models do not have tilt. My '98 328IS does not have tilt.

Yes they have it in the US but a majority of them don't. Personally my 93 325i doesn't have it.
