That makes me feel the worst for GTA04A5 (and Neo900 at large), or am I mistaken? I cannot bring up ~300k € (and if I could, I would, of course).

Or am I mistaken? I think used GTA04A4 are still around.

And I have published the picture you have sent on my Nextcloud:

I think this was okay with you. :-)

Best greetings from a still hopeful user,
