Paint is looking pretty dull, you should buff that out

Welcome to the forum. There is a pretty active Roadster group in the greater Bay Area, check out NorCalRoadsters for more info.

Performance wise it sounds pretty good. Since I think it's about what's inside that counts I won't comment on the exterior.

When we say it's slammed, we are more talking about the FA coilovers, 'illest' sticker, spray-paint paint job, etc. than the actual ride height.

If you are serious about tracking the car the first thing I'd do is sell those coilovers on CR.net.

They are unknown (to me). But if they are lightly used you can still probably get near-new price for them on CR.net.

For $1600 you will be MUCH better off with FCM Bilsteins or for a bit more Xida CS.

FA are fine for the drifting crowd, but if you want a real race coilover, buy one from the guys who do real racing in Miatas.

Does "I'm stationed at" and flat spray paint go together?

Odd because I was "stationed at" and spray painted my daily flat black. My reason was mismatched body panels from my buddy hitting me and previous owner dents.

Welcome and good luck.

pro tip: people in / from San Francisco do not call it "san fran" or "frisco".
