Not sure where to post this
 
There isnt a ZX3 only forum so i am unsure of where to post this but my question is this. i have a late model 2004 ZX3 which makes it a 2005 which i was un aware of when i purchased headlights for the car so i bought the headlights for a 2004 ZX3 now that i have them they dont appear to be fitting correctly i am unsure of if it is because there is something bent in the front end or not as i bought the car wrecked so my question is will 04 ZX3 headlights fit my 05 ZX3?

How would a late 04 be an 05?

Do your headlights look like this

No they won't. The front end was changed after 2004.

What doesn't show well in the top photo is that the line between the fender and the hood is not a straight line as it is in the bottom photo, rather there is a "scallop" in the lower portion of the fender that fits around the headlight unit, like this:

the door tag says 04 but all of the parts ive had to buy have had to be for an 05 because 04 parts are different than 05 parts
