I love the look of my Spy's. I've only had them for 3 months and put my stocks back on for winter. Gloss black is never easy to keep clean. If you are a clean-freak, either be ready to wipe them down every day, or be very unhappy. I usually wipe them down with a rag and spray detailer once or tiwce a day. But when they are clean, they look great!
