Tinted windows

I have a Ghibli Nero Ribelle SQ4 on the way (literally in the boat heading towards me) with rosso interior and the 21" wheels.
What is everyone's opinion on tinting the windows? Does it bring down the classy ness of the car a notch?
I'm leaning towards doing it as I think it will add to the sporty ness especially with the colors/ wheels I have chosen.
Your opinions are appreciated!

I don't think it brings the classiness of the car down in any way. Unless you are getting metallic tints.

Get a quality ceramic tint.

Post up some photos if you do! Just find a good installer and choose a good quality tint and choose your tint %. Those are pretty much the decisions you need to make.

I'm tinting my windows today with 25%.
I've always had 22% in my previous car, but going a little lighter this time.
I'm fairly young, so I can trade some classy ness for sporty ness.

It's a matter of taste. Imho auto glass tinting is on the same page as quick tanning lotion... but it looks great on you

25% looks great. How is it driving at night with tints that dark?
BTW your Ghibli looks great, especially in that second picture with other typical every day vehicles, it really stands out!

Thanks, yeah I get compliments every day. I even have drivers and people on the street taking picture on my car!!
Dark tints make the car look really sporty especially with blue emozione and dark wheel combination. This is exactly what I wanted.
I'm already used to dark tints, as I've always had 22% in my previous cars. Night drive is fine as long as you have some lights, you can see everything on your side and back with no issue.
