Post Protecting plastic grille and rear diffuser bumper

I bought my 2012 Camaro 2LT 5 days ago and being very protective of my things, I wanted to know what I can do to protect the unpainted black plastic pieces on the Camaro grille and bumper. I uses a watered down Meguiars cleaner wax for it, but I want something more suitable for the job. Any ideas or suggestions that you guys have on preserving these car pieces?

Something that will last 3-6 months, but go a long way - Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant or Ultima Trim Guard Plus. If you want something that will last for 2 years+, go with Gtechniq C4. It is way more expensive, but it last. I personally use WG Exterior Sealant or Ultima Trim and Tire Guard depending on which one is on sale. They are basically the same product. You could also give Wolf's Chemicals Nano Trim coating a shot. I haven't used it, but it looks pretty amazing. It is suppose to last 3-6 months also, but it makes the plastics darker. If you have anymore questions just let me know.

Would you recommend Meguiars Ultimate Black?

It works ok. It looks good, but it's like Mother's Back to Black. It doesn't last longer than a month if any rain or water touches it. It also tends to run sometimes if you leave a little excess on the trim.
