i have been thinking about getting a 5.06 final drive for my 06 si. since i am staying n/a i figured this would give me more get up and go, and complement the n/a set up nicely. is this too aggressive for street driving or would it be tolerable?

It will shave like 3-4mph off your top speed of each gear.

If you're going to stay n/a, don't mind the extra noise that comes from the engine and you're willing to sacrifice your MPG ratings.
Then go for it.

do they have the final drive for the r18 and would it be a good investment?

It'll change the MPH more than that in your upper gears.

Because the Si has such a long (and stupid) 6th gear it shouldn't change much of anything while driving daily. You'll just have to shift a little earlier. Your RPM's on the highway will be a little higher but I doubt you'll see much change in your gas mileage.
