Everything should work fine now. After adding, 5th product gets removed, and nice notice is displayed. Its not the perfect solution (since it removes a product after it was added), but it does the job well.

  1. Even the code is so simple, it is not working in Magento CE You also have a type in class declaration. It should be Compnay_Catalog_Helper_Observer instead of Pneumatig_Catalog_Helper_Observer.

    Could you please check again and provide a solution? Thank you.
