No.

There is no service book here.

Thatís interesting. I have a service book in mine, and the garage i bought the car from, stamped it every time it went for service.

I assumed these were common, and useful things.

Re: Sold car to garage- can they ask for money back?

Are there any differences in requirements for papers between cantons in terms of registering a vehicle? For example after the sale is complete, buyer tells he cannot register because of different requirements in other canton and some missing papers?

So it was miscommunication in the end.

No. The only paper needed is the gray card. That's it.

Care to clarify, so other people can learn from the situation?

Not sure it is typical situation where somebody else will benefit. Anyway, sale was completed together with written contract private to private, without any guarantee - "as is". Buyer started claiming document issues and problems with registering and wanting to return vehicle. I did not accept it back. After week or so, issues with documents magically disappeared telling me that registration office did a mistake.

Re: Sold car to garage- can they ask for money back?

This must be the first time in history, where the garage is asking for their money back. Looking at OP's location, it doesn't surprise me at all.

I would not return the money. For all I care, they could have removed or swapped a part out without you even noticing and that may even be their scheme to get parts for free.

Unless it is an import, in which case other documents may be required, as indicated on my grey card.
