Oppo reviews are great because there are no hard and fast rules. And I’m not going to suggest there should be. Three criteria I like that have not been on some recent reviews and just as a reminder to other oppos let me encourage:
- steering - handling is one thing; steering is another. What’s the wheel tell you as you drive; where is your car between air cooles manual rack 911 and video game?
- audio - choose between stereo or the more important soundtrack making the vroom vroom noises.
- gearbox - don’t skip it just cause you got an auto!
Another wild card option:
- practicality - if wagons are going to get 100, which they should; let’s tive credit where due
My 1 min 996 Oppo review having not driven my car in 3 months:
Exterior 8 parshh with egg lamps
Interior 7 90s/00s parshh
Speed 8 slightly maimed parshh
Handling 9 parshh!
Steering 9 parshh!
Gearbox 8 parshh but with crack cable end
Audio 8 parshhh with 1/2 an exhaust
Value 10 free parshh
Toys 7 parshh top goes down
Practicality 5 child and wife fits in parshh
79/100; I freaking love it, can’t wait to get it out; should be able to this weekend
