NEX-5N new user looking for circular polarizer lens

I'm pretty new to the whole photography game. I mainly do car photography/spotting. A lot of professionals have said that circular polarizers help eliminate a lot of the excess reflections, shininess when the sun is out. I live in socal so the sun is almost guaranteed to be out most of the time when I'm out taking pictures of cars.

1. Do I really need a circular polarizer? Or is this not necessary for the NEX-5n?

2. If I do need one, how do I know which size I will need? Will it fit on the 16mm 2.8 SEL16F28 lens?

Any help would be great, especially if you're into car photography too. Thanks!

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
