Default [Q] Availability?

First of all: I'm sincierly sorry to ask this question, but my recent finding destroyed my illusions of getting this phone.
Background story:
I found a person on ebay who is selling new, unopened, original Nexus 4 for real good price. I was like YES, I'm going to get it! Then I did some research and I found out that since the package starts from Hong Kong, it is checked by customs and that means no good. In Hungary the price is: The price of the phone + price of shipping + customs (3-12% of the earlier two combined) + 27% tax on the end result of the earlier 3 combined. It is CRAZY.
To work around this, I need the package to start from within the EU, because it means no customs and no 27% tax.
The question part
Can anyone tell me the cheapest and reliable place to get a new Nexus 4 from within the EU? And also it has to ship to Hungary, as my travelling options are very limited.
My maximum acceptable price is 280 dollars or the same value in any other money type. At the end of it's support it was cheaper than that at the play store so it has to be enough.

And once again: I seriously feel bad for having to ask this.

I'm currently downloading. And the ping is still 6ms. The speed is the same.

No idea but I think the used market is your best choice.
I bought a 16GB used Nexus 4 in mint condition still under warranty for 200€ 3 days in my country.
Surely you can find similar priced Nexus 4 on Ebay/Amazon?

It's probably just me, but I don't trust refurbished or used phones. Maybe I will have to change that in the future...

I feel you but as long as it has warranty and is in mint condition I don't see why not.
Besides I was on a tight budget aswell (200) and had nothing as good as the N4 close to this price.

I also don't see how you will find a new Nexus 4 for sale because they aren't produced anymore and any N4 you might find will have atleast 1 year inside a box without any use, probably left on a wharehouse.

good luck though!

I don't like the fact that they are sitting in a warehouse, but I still trust it more than a used one.
Currently the best one I found is 312 dollars with the taxes. It's crazy.
