5% Ceramic. Great for cutting down on heat. Even the clear ceramic does it.
No windshield
I guess it's all in what you think you can get away with.

A/C and heater works just fine. It's not out in the wild very much so I deem that there's no need for tint. YMMV.

Nothing is illegal until you get caught. Just can't be crying if you get pinged for illegal tint. Worse yet, in South Carolina they make you prove you removed the illegal tint as well as fining you. Double whammy.

Tint it. But as others said, all what you feel comfortable with considering the law. I'm 35% on rear and sides. Virginia tint law is 35 on rear and 50 on sides. Never been pulled for it. My wife has the same on her car, she
got pulled once on the way to work early morning with a warning.

From strictly a cosmetic standpoint, I say go for it! But personally, I would skip tinting the windshield.

From a legal standpoint, that's a different story.

With that, I've had mine tinted at 20% since 2009.

Sorry for the sideways photo, it always does that when I post from work

Voting no soley based on the statement of "all around". I would not do the windshield. That said, I do have an "eyebrow" on mine and that works well since the visors are useless. But all the other windows are max legal. Of course, I have to put down the window to back out of the driveway at night. Time for a backup cam.
