    My house. But then again, I really like my house. A full renovation to bring it up to my standards and tastes, and having find much of the work myself, means I'm highly invested — emotionally and financially — in it. The S is a very close second, though.

    Now that I have a real kitchen, it's the house. Before it was the Tesla. Tabco_bakers_table_installed.jpg

    For the last week or so, it is the Tesla - because I am having the house completely re-wired. For over a week, the house has been full of dust and the sound of power tools, so the Tesla has been a clean and peaceful escape. Once the wiring is finished, most of the rooms need new wood flooring - so that will mean more noise and dust.

    Definitely my Tesla. We rent a house and I do have my own home office/studio which I LOVE but the rest of the house it just okay.

    Our house. Plenty of space for the hounds to patrol and run. Grow lots of great produce in the yard. For all of Tesla's attributes, you cannot eat one.

    Not a fare comparison. They serve different senses in the brain.
    Remember, this is my rifle, this my gun? For different parts of life.
    But i like my S better anything. It doesnt nag or argue, it just snaps my neck everytime i mash it. I smile, im 75.

    My house has a hot tub, 48" Thermador stove, and a movie theater, Soda fountain, plus an arcade...

    Here are pics of the theater, arcade, and soda machine.

    That is the whole idea behind the Model 3 Tesla.

    You no longer have to choose between the two.

    As nice as my Tesla is, it doesn't have a pool and patio.

    Dang, America is divided! Votes are split 50/50.

    I really thought I would hear a lot more about the curse of home maintenance, but apparently, lots of people out there have some swanky digs.

    I have to vote car for day to day joy. House wins the day when it comes down to it.

    As others have said, not exactly a fair comparison.
    Definitely my house. We poured our heart and soul into our house. Played a significant role in designing it and setting the goals for it.
    Our house allows us to live a net zero lifestyle, and our Teslas to use net zero energy.
    We have replaced our Tesla’s with other Tesla’s.
    We will never replace our house with another house.

    I don't own a house. Houses here are around $1.5 million. I don't have that kind of money yet so I just rent for now. So for me it would be the Tesla.
