Default Appearance mods on my '16 s3

I just picked up a used 2016 s3 in Mythos Black without the black optics package & a really dark window tint. I really like the way the black optics package looks on the cars I've seen with it. Especially, if the car is red or white. I'm curious if anyone has seen a black s3 with the black optics package and if it looked good. I have this picture in my head and I feel like it would look good but I'm also worried it might be too much black. I'm not planning on getting all of the black optics parts as it would be too much money for very little change but this is what I'm thinking:
* black honeycomb/rs3 gril with chrome rings.
* black wrapped window trim
* carbon fiber mirrors
* black optics front side vents
* remove the tint completely or at least make it lighter

Has anyone seen anything like this? Is it too much black?

I have a set of Mythos black mirror caps with side assist if you're interested.

Thanks! I really like the look of it. Did yours come with the black optics parts or did you have to buy them after?

standard black optics package but would have had it done if it didnt. I would take it to a window tinting shop (as most do wraps aswell) and have them wrap the trim you want done. BTW the tint on my windows are 20% on the back and rear doors and 50% on the front doors.

I think I might just do 20% all around. Idk what it's currently at but it feels too dark.
