Default Window Tint

I'm loving my new car but worried about the leather in the summer months (hot seats and fading), so I'm thinking about getting a tint done. I'm not sure what color or percentage will look good with the silver paint of the car. I just can't seem to picture the black and silver going together, I really don't want the car looking like it came from the ghetto, I'd like it to stay classy, so maybe silver tints? Also, the regulations in NY I believe are no tint in the front windows but I'd do it anyways so I'm going to stay with a higher percentage in order to keep all of the tints the same..I'm not sure about regulation in the back... I think the Lexus RX300'* come with tint on them and I really like what they have and woud like to possibly duplicate it if it'll look good. Any suggestions? Would the Lexus silverish tint look alright on my Bonne?

A link for an RX300 pic is below:

IMO, silver tint is ghetto, and black tint is classy

you really think the silver is ghetto? hmmm, I didnt think so but maybe I'm just wrong... What percentage black tint then? I don't want to have my car looking like the drug pushing ghetto fab cars that come out of the city.

it wont look like that no matter the tint. its a bonneville.

go with black. if you want to be safe, go with 50% or some such.

EDIT: black is sleek, mirror tint looks crappy on silver cars, and any other color tint is rice.

I just drove by a riced out car yesterday with the top half of the mirror tint cut off.
I'm guessing the law made him do it.

talk about ghetto
