Hi Victor. Don't know your definition of "recently", but I had good success last August 2020.

Best,
Bob

I've received packs on two different cars from Guido at Erikoenig. Very pleased with both. This last one, last August, Guido recommended UPS due to postal problems caused by covid. Everything went smoothly. About 2 weeks from my request until I received the packet.

Best regards. Stay safe.

Victor, i just ordered 2 reutter certs the other day from Guido. I chatted with him personally while visiting "Essen" a few years ago. Nice guy. I know there were some complaints a while ago, but seems like he is back online.

I ordered one of their certificates while at the LA Lit meet in March 2020. About 2 months later I received an email from Guido for payment which I sent. About 2 months after that I received the booklet. Calling it a certificate does not do it justice. Very nicely done. Communication was good, he answered emails promptly - which has not been the case in the past. I was pleased with the product. First confirmation that my 59A cab was a hardtop only delivery plus carpet color etc. none of this information was on the COA or the Kardex.
Regards,

I ordered one back in March and never received it nor would Guido respond after sending me this e-mail on July 9th:
=======================================
Fwd: Your order from ERLKÖNIG CLASSIC (#12672)
Erlkoenig Classic (info@erlkoenig-classic.de)
To:you Details
Dear Darryl,

sorry for the late reply . Your certificate was finished in Mai and shipped out . Actually we search about more than 8 shipment from the last three month there were lost by shipping but we get now fixed information.
So I think the best for you is when we make a duplicate ( 100% like the first one ) and ship it out a second time as priority mail with deutsche post.
I´ll give you a feedback when the second shipment is done with all the tracking information.

I´m so sorry for the horrible delivery times in this covid days.
Thank you also for your patience

King Regards

Guido
=================================
Unhappy would be the nicest way to describe what I think about his customer service.

I got one a while back for my Speedster. I think it's fantastic.
If you have a copies of both the Kardex and this Reuter report, I think you've got everything covered.

Here are photos (I hope) of the Reutter package. Lots of info, and carper/paint sample. And some Reutter history.

I ordered the build sheet with a leather folder in last Sep
but I only got the build sheet and shown post card in last Dec.

Even though I sent reminder e-mails four times,
there is no reply and I have not received the leather folder yet.

Does anyone know the current situation of this shop?

Although this was a very old post, I must be fair to Erikoenig-classic.
With some pull from a 356 friend who had previously ordered a build sheet, he helped
expedite the build sheet. I received it approximately 3 weeks after the original post.

Thank you for your information Victor.

It took over 3 months to get my build sheet, but I am very satisfied with its quality.
My only complaint is that I have not received the leather folder for 6 months and there is no reply.

On my side I ordered the Reutter certificate of production with leather jacket on march 2021, had few mails with Guido, and then... full blackout.
I sent every few months emails asking for status, but I have no news from Guido, and I did not receive anything since march 2021 (no email, no postcard, no build sheet)
I hope he's well and that's only linked to current situation.
Has anyone a "direct" contact with him instead of info@ email address ?
