Exterior-Fix cosmetic issues, OEM lip
I just got the car, so nothing is set in stone.
Yeah, definitely a front sway bar. The stock one is way too soft. Putting a rear sway isn't necessary, but it is common for some NA owners to swap in a NB rear sway.
Definitely go FI if you have the money. Doesn't have to be anything crazy, just something to give the Miata a little extra power. It's pretty lacking for certain situations.
As for tires, the Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Specs are pretty much THE best max performance summer tires you can buy for the money. They're great in dry or wet and they're cheaper than most other competitors as well.
For exterior modifications all you need is the OEM R-Package front and rear lips and you're golden.
