I rescently bought a 2006 R8 with original receipt (without serial number) and case candy, except for COA. Instead I got a confirmation email from Customers Service stating the authenticity of the pictures and serial number sent. I just didn't get the mail from previous owner too.
Now, I don't doubt the originality of my R8, but I realised that I don't have any papers where serial number figures on.
I live in Denmark. What's the advice how to act appropriate? Do I rewrite Gibson Customers Service with new pictures? IMHO as long as I intend to keeping her I don't feel any need for more id. But I am not sure about requests for COA from a Gibson dealer if I want some services done.
