When it comes down to it, the dealer/shop record of service is really the only one that will withstand any level of scrutiny.
Receipts of oil/filter purchase is not proof of much more then spending money. Who actualy purchased it, you or a distant cousin, where was it used, did it actually go into your car and not your wife’s. The same for pictures. To many ways for the manufacturer to cast doubt on the story. Having said that, a solid paper trail will only help reinforce ones story of proper maintenance if it ever came to it. I change my oil myself because I like doing it and have never worried about what and how the warranty will be impacted. I change it once a year before it goes into storage. 6000 miles on a 2015 and 5 oil changes later. The only proof I have is my little black book in the glove box. Haha.
