Well considering the dinan CAI intake is in the bumper...removing your headlight really wont get any more airflow into the filter and may even cause unwanted drag...

Some guys probably remove the headlights so they can create a larger air intake opening. Don't bother doing it.

If you had an ECIS filter I would say do it, the Dinan intake is behind the bumper.
