Trying to find some precut film to protect headlights.
WeatherTech only list LampGuard for the 2016 not 2018 outback.
Did the change headlight design/shape from 2016?

easiest way to check, is t go to a site like subaru parts online, and see if the part number is the same. i know the grill changed along with the unpainted rear cladding.

Xpel and LaminX arent as thick as WeatherTech's LampGurad...

Did the headlamp design change from 2016 to 2018?

Yes it changed. The 2018 has a very distinct bulge in the upper molding accentuating the newer LED running light that would affect the shape of a vinyl wrap cut-out. The differences are obvious when viewing photos side by side.





Edit: FYI, the hood and quarter panels remained the same as far as I know. The general facelift was limited to the bumper and headlight, typical for most mid-chassis facelifts.
