Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic or Turtle Wax Ice Seal & Shine?

I picked up a bottle of each, and I'm hemming and hawing over which to try first. Any suggestions? I've seen good things about both, but I'm not gung ho enough to do a side-by-side split comparo. I'll probably end up trying one on my F30 and the other on the family's E90, just not sure which will go on which.

i used the hybrid ceramic but have decided to stop using as it made the surface buttery and every piece of dust stuck to the paint. yea water beads off but all the dust and fallout stuck to the car like a static charge. I'd recommend whatever product makes the surface slick. That way wind can blow off the dust the minute you drive instead of being stuck to the surface like meguiars hybrid ceramic does.

I've had really good luck with Meguiars Hybrid Ceramic wax but I didn't just splash it on like the instruction.

I actually washed, clayed and wiped down with isopropyl alcohol then apply it using a damp applicator to the surface in crisscross pattern and immediately hand buffed it out with a micro fiber towel. Then I let it cure in the garage overnight. Now most road grime just rinse off, water spotting is never an issue and dust just blows off with a leaf blower.

I just put some on my car the way GenXer did and I sprayed it on and pressure washed it off on my daughter's car. We'll see how both work. Just did it this morning since I was bored. Also I did her car with Menzerna AIO to clean it up a little. Her's hasn't been washed in forever (it's 11 years old) and her mom treated it like crap since it was her winter car.

I used the Turtle Wax for the first time on my car 2 weeks a go. Water still beads like pearls. So up till now very happy when you look at price <-> results.

Now time will tell

Has anyone tried using TW Seal N Shine on the wheel well liners? I'm prepping my car for winter, and I want to protect the wheel wells from the typical snow build up. Since they are more of a carpeted surface, I'm not sure what to use.
