I found a 1999 Q system V6 in March 2015.
25,000 miles from new, one owner. Still like new.
I stored it for a year, but now I gave it to my mum to use. She's 75, so an automatic is what she needed. (previously had Enoch Powell's old 1994 Honda Concerto Automatic. I have this car to sell for her....maybe I should advertise it at the Notting Hill Carnival?).
She only does about 3,000 miles a year and it is stored under cover.
It is a lovely car, and one day these will be collectable. However I think most would want a Veloce/Sport pack, momo leather manual...the Q-system does drop the engine off the cam which the 6 speed manual doesn't, so it isn't really a racer.
I have a 156 GTA, but the 2.5 V6 certainly has its own charm, and the q-system is lovely. Poodle around town in City mode and then use the gears on the A and B roads when the 2.5 gets the better of your sensible side....even with 4 gears it is still fun to let the busso off the leash.
