Which ones have it?

I'm new to the BMW world and in the market for a 3-series, but I have a few questions first. Which ones come with the 6cyl and of those, which is the most likely to have a stickshift? I can't really afford an M3, so what else is there? Max budget is about $7500. Any help would be appreciated.

All of the models have pretty much the same likelihood of being available with a manual transmission. The 320 (2.0l, not avai;able in the US),323 (2.5l), 325(2.5l), and 328(2.8l) have 6-cylinder engines. I would recommend that you get either a 328 or a 325, since they are faster. The 328 has the most torque among these two, but the 325 is easier to mod because it is OBDII. Run a search. There is abundant information regarding this issue here. $7500 should be enough to get any of these in decent shape.

I think you were trying to say that the 325 is OBDI. Either way, both the 325 and 328 are good choices.
