Just for curiosity's sake: How does someone like Ferdi even manage to get
his hands on such an upgrade implant, i.e. are there really companies
around which still produce such add-on accessories for the Newt? Or has
he just been able to buy up some old stock of such accessories that
people are beginning to sell out en masse, similar to the 2x00 now being
sold by so many resellers on ebay?
