If you want to know if you need to clay or not... Take a plastic grocery bag, put your hand it in, and use your fingertips to slowly go over the area that you're checking. The plastic bag will act like an amplifier & you'll feel little bumps.
Clay the area & check again w/ the bag. Repeat until you feel nothing but smooth paint.
If you want to go a step further you can get a bottle of Iron-X, especially if you've just picked up your new car & want to get rid of all the rail dust. IMO it's not as bad smelling as some have said - but it is a bit pricy.
Clay bars work great, they leave a smooth and clean surface to apply was or sealer. I do it twice a year for my daily driver before a sealer abd once a year on my Cobra which is garaged and covered.
