There is a lever under the steering column, pull it down and you can adjust the wheel.

Only adjustable up and down though n

Wasn't certain about what it looked like yesterday, but checked today.
You'll find the grip of the lever very high up, almost at the wheel.

Are you sure it's gone?

Hey....

This steering Wheel Adjustment has been buggin me for about 4 years now...with 3 different E36's i have had. For some reason....bmw did not make a steering wheel adjustement a standard option on the E36 models. I have had a 93, 325i, with a steering wheel adjustment, then a 96 328i, without one, now i have a 99 M3, and still no steering wheel ajustment. I talked to a mechanic about it, and he said that was one of the complaints about the E36 model, so now i think it is standard on all model BMW's.

tell me about it.......my civic had tilt, and my bimmer doesn't

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>
