Aside from that I hear that even new cars direct from the factory need clay bar but part of me feels that this is from people that want to sell clay bar.
I'll be doing mine today (tree sap) but when I did my last car, the difference was really obvious.

I dunno about the baggie test but the car surface feels like, well, really really smooth when you run you hand over it. There's nothing you can see, its just amazing the difference between "done" and "not done yet" surfaces on the car.
