The Motor1.com team is scattered all over the globe. Even here in the US, we have editors in Los Angeles, a couple in Detroit, folks in Florida, Ohio, and more. And, we all love talking about what we're driving. The Test Car Happy Hour on Thursdays at 2:30 PM Eastern (11:30 AM Pacific) is where we have a face-to-face digital car meet. You can be part of the conversation by joining us during the show on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. Your comments automatically go into our streaming feed where we can see, share, and respond to them.
If you happen to be reading this after the live broadcast has ended, you can also find the audio version of TCHH on all of your favorite streaming platforms, first thing every Monday morning.

This week we have a full house with Motor1.com Editor-in-Chief Seyth Miersma, Managing Editor Brandon Turkus, Senior Editor Jeff Perez, and Senior Editor Brett T. Evans.
Going alphabetically by automaker, Perez is driving the BMW Z4. The convertible has a refresh for the 2023 model year. There are minor styling changes and new colors like Thundernight metallic, Portimao Blue metallic, and Skyscraper Grey metallic. THe sDrive30i model now comes standard with an M Sport package that includes sports seats, an M leather steering wheel, M pedals and footrest, and a dashboard upholstered in SensaTec leather.
Evans has the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV EV. It's an opulent vehicle that puts all the brand's cutting-edge tech in a smoothly styled package.
The Lexus IS500 is in Miersma's garage. This performance sedan has a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 making 472 horsepower and 395 pound-feet. This is enough power to hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Finally, Turkus has the Toyota bZ4X electric crossover. It rides on Toyota's e-TGNA platform. Buyers can select between front- and all-wheel-drive configurations
