You are the MAN,
I recently bought a 2002 Jaguar XKR from Larry Bonet. I have bought several cars online and
most were good experiences. Dealing with Larry was a good experience. I found him to be
accommodating without being pushy. The car was a low mileage, one-owner vehicle, which
appealed to me. What was not so appealing was the lack of service records on the car. Larry
made an honest eﬀort to track them down with the original owner but was unsuccessful. This
made the already important inspection of the car more critical. I located a Jaguar repair facility
and contacted them about doing the inspection. The owner, Bryan, had not worked with Larry
before but knew of him and spoke very highly of him. After inspecting the car he found three
minor ﬂaws, the most serious one, the remote mirror switch was already being addressed by
Larry's mechanics. Bryan said unequivocally buy this car, it is impeccable. I made Larry an
oﬀer and asked him to remove the ugly license plate frame from the front bumper. Larry not
only removed the frame but ﬁlled in the two holes for the mounting screws and painted over
them. I had a transport company ship the car up to South Carolina. The car was everything
Larry said it was and more. The driver told me he worked with a lot of car dealers and was
impressed with Larry. "He's a good guy." That about says it all. I would deﬁnitely work with
Good morning Larry.
I just wanted to say Thank you once again for making my car buying experience a “Enjoyable” one. I never ever thought I would say those words. Your knowledge, professionalism and honesty is something that is unparalleled in your industry in my opinion.
I will be more than happy to refer anyone your way that I know who may be in the market to buy a car. I’m looking forward to many years in the GLK.
I’m trying to figure out how to write a review on Carfax or Google and will do that soon.
I’m sorry I interrupted your Range time and you went back to the shop looking for my house keys. If you could mail them to me ? I can Venmo you whatever it costs to send them.
Thank you again for everything. Have a great weekend. Hit em straight.

Disappointed I can't complete the purchase at this time. You have the best cars in the state by far and are the most level headed person I have dealt with. That MB would have been perfect for me. Sorry again,but thank you anyway. Logan
Larry was an absolute pleasure to work with in buying my Porsche Cayenne. His communication and follow-up was spot-on and he did everything he said he would. He made the process of buying a car “sight unseen” easy and he promptly established my trust. I can recommend without hesitation purchasing a car from Larry!.

You have a NEW Lead!
I just wanted to thank you for the most pleasant car buying experience I have ever had! My CR-V is running like a dream. I can't express enough how easy and comfortable you made the experience. Buying a car out of state and then driving it 1,200 miles home is a big deal. I have to say that I left your office with complete confidence, and was not disappointed! I'll be sending friends and family your way.
All the best, and happy holidays to you and your family.
Larry we will send the title tomorrow. We appreciate the smooth transfer of our trade in and purchasing your Cadillac. We love the car runs great looks great couldn’t be happier.we will send anyone that is looking for a car your way thanks again.

Working with Unique and Larry was an absolute pleasure - here's the backstory: My wife and our 2 big galoots (180lbs of dogs) drive everywhere together...she had 3 VW bug convertibles, and we were looking for a 4th, and was having a hard time finding anything decent on line.....While searching, she stumbled across a low mile Volvo C70 at Unique.....I've had Volvo SUVs for years, and have been very happy.....so even though it was actually older than her bug, we started looking at Volvos.....after shopping around nationally on line - Unique's deal was far and away the best. Began working with Larry via text and over the phone - was an absolute pleasure - gave him a wire deposit, described our trade, and made the 250 mile drive..... Upon arriving at Unique and looking at the car - it was even better than described - and Larry was so fair....he looked at our trade and said, "I think you undersold this car, it's not as bad as you said"...and gave us a couple bucks more than we had discussed, The paperwork was painless, it's been almost a week and everybody loves the new (to us) car!!! We've already told several friends about Unique - hope to do business with Larry or direct business to him in the future
Larry was absolutely outstanding with the purchase of our 2013 Honda Odyssey! From the description on CarFax to actual possession of the car he was informative and truthful! Thank you so much Larry we love the mini van!!!
Hi Larry. I just wanted to say thank you for making the purchase of this vehicle be so painless. My daughter in law loves the Porsche . I really appreciate how professional you were with allowing us to get the car inspected and then even taking it to your mechanic, who checked the car out again. I wish you and your family the best and good health.
Larry, The 2009 Mercedes CLK350 I bought exceeds expectations! Thank you for the excellent description and all the help you provided to get the deal done. Buying a car I'd never seen or driven was unsettling, but that was the best way to get the low mileage, high quality car I wanted. The shipping of the car you arranged for me to Tennessee was flawless. Again, thank you for your friendly, professional effort. I'll certainly be back for my next car and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for a quality vehicle Brian Duncan Powell, TN
Larry at Unique Sport and Imports is a great person to work with.
He treated me fairly, was honest, timely with his replies and was straightforward with any questions/concerns.
I was looking at a car that I was very interested in, but I was on the fence because I was 250 miles away and could not easily come to take a look or test drive it on a random day of the week. I called and let him know my situation and he went out of his way to take an 8-minute long detailed video of all the parts of the car in working condition. That alone already made me feel better about the entire car-buying process. After a lot of back and forth conversations with Larry, I finally made the decision to go see the car. Larry was very hospitable, patient, and understanding about all of the questions being asked.
After deciding to purchase the car, he explained the entire process, pretty much did all of the work with the title transfer, registration, and all that fun stuff. Being the 2nd private dealership that I have purchased from - this was not sketchy at all
Dear Larry, Five years ago, I purchased a vehicle from you (2006 Subaru Forester L.L. Bean) with 136k mileson it. I am extremely proud to say that I just hit 210k miles and it's still going stronger than ever. In 2018 I relocated to Arizona from Florida and drove this car twice across country in the same year. I have had absolutely no troubles with it (other than doing normal maintenance). I cannot express how grateful I am to you for your honesty and loyalty. Your choice in puirchasing and selecting quality vehicles that have been meticuously maintained definitely provesto be true. I would recommend anyone who wants to purchase a quality and meticuously maintained vehicle to come see you. Granted, my purchase wasn't a Bentley...but to me it's just as good as a Bentley and gives me the same happiness. I enjoy the AWD and going up in the mountains with my dogs, I continue to take great care of it. I just wanted to sincerely thank you from one human being to another and let you knowhow much I appreciate your authenticity. Thank you for doing what you do! With Gratitude, From a super happy customer 5 years later!
Found the car we were looking for at a reasonable price. No fancy showroom with balloons and popcorn machines driving up the price. A little off the beaten track but sometimes a treasure has to be found and not thrown at you. Larry was a pleasure to work with, we puchased car from him and will recommend him in the future
My wife and I have owned some 40 cars over the years,but never a real sports car ..... until I met Larry @ Unique Sport & Imports in Sarasota,Florida 🌴 via Craigslist.
After searching 100s of used vehicules on Car Max ~ eBay etc etc they were all either too expensive or with excessive mileage.
As a Professional Photographer I appreciate good photos .... and Larry had the BEST photos which stopped me cold in my tracks ! I specifically wanted a nice used Audi TT ..... and the photos elegantly showcased a 2006 Audi TT in MINT condition inside & out plus it had low mileage and a very fair price 😊
Unique Sport & Imports had a very nice & user friendly website.
Larry and I negotiated over the phone as well as texting.Larry walked me through everything in detail plus arranged shipping.
When the car came off of the truck I was in utter disbelief .... for it was more beautiful than I ever imagined ..... it was better than mint ! And the paint job was STUNNING ! The leather was also in mint condition and the engine was CLEAN .... and even the tires were like new .... plus the A/C was COLD and the sound system worked GREAT !
My wife and I took it for a drive .... like nothing I've ever driven before !
I wanted to bring the car inside our house ... but it wouldn't fit through the front doors 😊
I want to say Thank You to Larry for making it all possible !

I found my dream car at Unique Sport & Imports. Larry was very patient, put up with me canceling several appointments. His statements about the car were honest and reliable. Larry is a fine Gentleman I would do business with him again. Thanks Larry, my CL 63 is fabulous
I cannot say enough good things about Unique Sports & Imports. I have worked with a handful of boutique car showrooms across the nation, and Unique Sport & Imports sits quite high on my list, you just can't beat a warehouse full of cool cars, great people, and exceptional service. Larry went above and beyond for me and I can say with confidence that he would do that for anyone, because he cares about his customers and loves what he does. I would recommend Unique to anyone, and I will continue to stay in touch with hopes that I can find another "unique" German machine. Regardless, you can't go wrong giving Unique Sports & Imports your business and I assure you there are few people in the southwest Florida region as knowledgeable and well connected as Larry.
LARRY, GOOD FRIDAY MORNING...GOT THE CAR LAST NIGHT ABOUT 7:45. CAR IS BEAUTIFUL! THANK YOU FOR DELIVERING SUCH AN AWESOME RIDE! DON
Larry was fantastic and helped me thru the purchase. Very professional. I would send anyone to him. Jeanie
I had by far the best experience I've ever had buying a used car when I bought a car from Larry at Unique Sport and Imports. I live in New York and saw the exact car I wanted on the website. Larry made the transaction go so smoothly. I bought the car from just seeing the pictures and the car is perfect. Larry helped out every step of the way and the car was in outstanding condition after delivery from Florida. I am extremely happy with my purchase and I definitely will be purchasing a car from them aagin in the future.
Dear Larry, Just a quick note to express our thanks and complete satisfaction with the forthright manner with which you conducted our recent business transaction. We appreciate your honest and accurate representation of the car and your attention to the details of the deal. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I would be more than happy to recommend you and your dealership to anyone in the market for a great car. Best Regards, Al and Joyce Remling
Larry is very professional and willing to make deals work quickly. I would recommend Unique and Larry, to anyone looking to purchase a quality vehicle from a quality business professional. - Thanks again Larry! 10/9/17 Paul
I couldn't be happier with my beautiful BMW Z3 convertible. I would strongly recommend Unique Sport and Motors to anyone who is looking for a nice car. Larry has a very nice selection of cars and is very honest.
Thank you, Larry!

Until I "met" you over the phone, buying a high-end car from 1000 miles away is not something that I would ever do...
I like to kick the tires, hear the motor, feel the transmission, push the buttons, look at all the fluids, belts, hoses, seals, tire wear, exhaust; and take a good long test drive.
BUT, you took the time to do all that with me over the phone! You answered every single question with the absolute truth. After speaking with you, I felt comfortable enough to seal our deal-- and the car was exactly what you represented it to be.
I cannot thank you enough for your hard work, honesty and integrity!!!!!

Larry, I bought a Mercedes R500 from you last August. You have been over the top with everything. My son Jon lives on Longboat Key and wants to ship two cars to Golden, CO. I was hoping you could help him. Your The Best, James La Femina
Unique Sport & Imports was my first experience buying a car online and over the phone. Living in Michigan, I had to trust Larry at Unique Sport &Imports. Larry was very honest about everything he said. I would recommend this dealer to anyone. DF Michigan
I bought my Mercedes from Larry and he has been everything he promised fixing the car to my satisfaction and has done it with a smile on his face and I would highly recommend Larry to anyone who is looking previously owned luxury automobile. Philip Meyer
Just wanted to thank you for helping me buy the KIA Soul. It is a great puddle jumper and perfect for what I needed.
Purchasing our 2005 Volvo XC70 was more pleasant than I could have ever imagined! This was the first big purchase my husband and I have made together since we were married and it has definitely set the bar for future purchases we will make together. Not only did the car arrive and knock my socks off, it was exactly as Larry has described it. Larry was in constant contact with us and made me feel more comfortable about making such a big decision since we were buying the car sight unseen. I will only buy my future cars from Larry at Unique Sport and Imports from now on and would recommend him to anyone!!Thanks again Larry for helping my husband and I to find a car that fits us perfectly and makes us so happy!Lindsey and Sheftall GiddensSavannah, GAThanks again Larry! Have a great weekend!!Lindsey Gidden
Bobby from Scranton just letting you know they delivered the car on Saturday. The car is beautiful and it is all that you said it was and more. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Thank You! 1995 MB 500SL

I wanted to let you and others out there looking to buy a car, that dealing with you has been a very painless and surprisingly satisfying experience. I needed to get a new vehicle as I had owned my truck for nearly 7 years and found that I not only did not need the room anymore, but found that I am driving a little more and with gas prices the way they are, I am spending too much every week on gas alone.
I saw the Audi A6 on Craigs’ list originally, then went to your web site to see what else you might have. The Audi was a perfect match for me, so I emailed you late in the evening, along with pictures of my truck, asking if you would be interested in a trade. It was nice to hear from you very early the next morning stating that you would be interested and that you would be coming up into Tampa and would meet me to view each others vehicles.
The whole process was very easy going, you made me feel comfortable, and you were very accurate about your description of the car and your honesty helped make my decision easy when deciding on what car I was going to get, and who I would get it from.
I will certainly let others know about you and tell them that doing business with you was as easy as going to the grocery store.
These days it’s good to know the right people to do business with, and I believe you are one of those people, so thanks very much, and I hope to business with you again, but not too soon, as I would like to hold onto this vehicle for awhile, it’s one of the best.

~Dealing with a cross country car transaction can be very unsettling. Mr. Bonet was extremely patient,courteous, prompt and professional. The vehicle that I chose was just as he proclaimed it to be and had no mechanical issues whatsoever. All necessary documents were sent on time and Larry went the extra mile to make sure that I was happy with each step we took in the cross country transaction. I would certainly do business again with Mr. Bonet and I look forward to it. I recommend anybody to work with Mr. Bonet and assure you that you will be satisfied.
Thanks for being a man of integrity. It’s good to know that there are guys like you still in the world. I hope that God blesses your business because of it.
Nice working with you. I put the stock tires/wheels back on the car and am enjoying how it’s driving.
Just a brief note to tell you how satisfied I am with the purchase of the 2004 Mercedes Benz E500 4Matic Wagon that I obtained from you. When I first went to see the car it was beautiful and much nicer than what I expected and thoroughly documented. However being a seven year old car, some flaws and blemishes are expected. To your credit, you went out of your way to point out what few flaws there were. I probably couldn’t have spotted all of them myself. Since I have taken delivery I have taken the car through its paces and have had absolutely no problem.
I highly recommend your dealership and your services.
I am very satisfied with the purchase of the 2005 Mercedes Benz E320 CDI from Bonet Imports.
I had a few issues on my end during the process which dragged things out and tested the man's patience but Larry hung in there with me and worked with me to bring things to a mutually satisfactory conclusion.
Larry said to me on the phone one time "You really would have to go far to find another car with this mileage and age in this condition. This is a NICE car!". Well he was right and spoke the truth. So in my book this is one used car salesman that breaks the mold and is a man of his word and a gentleman to boot!
Thanks Larry! I highly recommend your dealership and your services.
Thanks for selling the C320 Mercedes Benz to us, we are very satisfied with the car. Better yet, we are much more satisfied with the service you provided. You were so good about explaining things to my husband, easy to work with. You also worked with us on showing the car in late hour to match our schedules, and made extra trip to the bank with us. We thank you for your service and that you have made the transaction went so smooth.

“I recently purchased a Mercedes C280 4matic from Bonet Imports. From start to finish, it was a great pleasure to do business with Larry. Larry was very flexible and willing to adapt to my schedule – which was very helpful due to my work routine. Larry was very kind, knowledgeable, and easy to work with throughout the process.
Aside from Larry’s ability to conduct the sale as a consummate professional, it is imperative to mention that the vehicle itself was in flawless condition. The vehicle had been very well maintained. As Larry explained to me he “only buys the highest quality vehicles to ensure that his customers only get high-quality vehicles”. This statement proved to be true.
In summary, I would highly recommend Bonet Imports to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
I have bought two cars from Larry, a Maserati Gran Turismo, and most recently, a Ferrari Maranello. Both cars were used, although you would be hard pressed to realize it.
They were exactly as Larry described them, and each deal was conducted in such a way that I would not hesitate to recommend Larry to any one else looking for a special car at a fair price.
His expirience not only saved me time and money, but made the whole car buying procedure very enjoyable.
Thank you Larry for your time and effort during my purchase of the Lexus LS400. I appreciate you going out of your way to meet me twice during this purchase experience! The car is running like a top and is a real beauty! I looked long and hard for a car within my budget that still had luxury, relatively low mileage, and was clean. You had it! Your pricing was better than anything I looked at. I will certainly send anyone your way that's in the market for a fine used car! Thanks for the great experience!

Thanks Larry for the fantastic service and advise regarding the sale of my Escalade. Beginning with the planning , automobile prep, advertising, and ease of post sale delivery and paperwork, everything was first class! I wouldn't need to remind you that the sale price results you obtained was several thousand above the trade in price I almost accepted. The whole process took only one week. Unbelievable!!! Thanks again. Bruce Kruglick MD
Just a note to follow up on our deal. The 99 Mercedes is performing as new, we have enjoyed it greatly. Thanks for the extra effort you put forth to rectify the issue wih the headliner. Even though you were not obligated you went the extra mile to help fix the problem. It's good to know that there are still some folks around that are as concerned with customer satisfaction as they are completing the sale.
I just wanted to tell you how happy we our with our Mercedes R-Class...The van drives great and we fit in it like a glove..After driving many different types of mercedes over the years this one is one of my favorites..Being a pre owned i was a little nervous about the the maintenance and up keep. After driving this car and having it for a few weeks i can tell it was well cared for safe and solid...It was great to know that you had the car inspected before we purchased... Selling quality over selling quantity is something that made me feel happy to do business with you..
Before coming to Bonet imports we had been to 3 Mercedes dealers and a number of used car lots....With the world falling apart and everyone trying to make a buck you treated Me and my family with the respect and honesty that's hard to find they days...I 'm a man that still lives by a MANS WORD IS ALL HE HAS..It's good to see that your a man that goes the extra mile to make your customers happy and your WORD IS AS GOOD AS GOLD....I can't wait until we can buy a nice 2 seater mercedes from you when my kids are off to college...Take care and thanks for everything...
