If you have never clay barred the paint, it will need it.

Even on brand new zero miles delivered cars, the paint is full of grits, micro iron filings, and pollutants.
After SnowFoam or at least a "2 bucket" method wash...without sponges.
Polishing is "the art" of removing a micro layer or dead paint or lacquer...very carefully.
What it does do is expose the paint to pollution & damage unless the restored surface is sealed.
Depends on how your budget (or interest) stretches.
My favourite is Poorboys Carnuba but there are hundreds of "favourites".
This is 27 years old original paint.
