Is there a way to limit and randomize related content?

I have a site where products can have up to 4 related products. These are selected via a complextablefield.
Currently, all selected related products are display. I'd like to know how I can:

1. Limit these to show only 4
2. If possible, show 4 random ones from all which have been selected.

I think there is a way to limit and randomize related content. You have to edit your SQL-Request ( DataObject::get), because you can write an optional parameter (limit). Furthermore you can create an easy random function in mysite/code , which the DataObject will randomize.

If you don't know what I suppose, you can show me your source code. So I can look at this!

Best regards,
